As of yesterday, the Newcastle public is able to view one of artist John O'Rourke's enigmatic sculptures, Chambers of the Self.

Meticulously constructed of wooden sections, this larger-than-life head features an architectural interior of doorways, stairs and hidden rooms, typical of this artist's work.

John O'Rourke runs the Foundation Degree in Fine Art at Tyne Metropolitan College, North Tyneside, and is currently completing a fine art PhD at Aberystwyth University.

Chambers of the Self is on display at North Tyneside Council's Quadrant building, Silverlink North, Cobalt Business Park, North Tyneside, until December 2009.
