Since the early 1980s these themes have remained constant in his work, with Drummond completing major private and public works throughout New Zealand that are impressive in their engineering, construction and the beauty of their materials.
Described as ‘artist and alchemist, ‘ Drummond was senior lecturer in sculpture at the University of Canterbury (1992-2003) and appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to sculpture in 2006.
Drummond has work in the collections of the Auckland Art Gallery, Te Papa - Museum of New zealand, Wellington; and the Christchurch Art Gallery.
