“Dancing in the moonlight”
Sydney October 2016 (13 photos)
Sculpture by the Sea celebrated its 20th year in 2016. There were 104 sculptures by 103 artists from 17 different countries this year. Originally a one day exhibition in 1997, this year Sculpture by the Sea ran from 20 October to 7 November.
SURFING BONDI CLOUDS, by Barbara Licha.
Statement: To move viewers further than reality, and give the watcher feelings about the sky and its endeavours. An opportunity to mirror our connection to the scenery, and send a message of pleasure and day dreaming.
Despite the chaotic nature of the design of this sculpture, I found it to be quite relaxing and pleasing to look at.
THE MESSAGE, by Marcus Tatton.
Statement: Get the message.
“Urban cave dwelling”
DYNAMICS IN IMPERMANENCE, by Nicole Larkin.
Statement: The pieces alter, and are simultaneously part of the temporal conditions of the site, creating a fleeting spatial experience within and around the work.
“Hey, St Peter”
THE PEARLY GATES, by Jane Gillings.
Statement: Borders, fences, gates. Keeping things in, keeping things out. Whichever side you’d like to be on, welcome.
“Beware of the God”
“Just another drop in the ocean”
FLUID, by Norton Flavel.
Statement: A reference to the notion of significance.
“Finding land’s end”
INFRASTRUCTURE 5, by Oliver Stratton-Pow.
Statement: Taps into the rampant development that has pride of place in the city, as if humanity has spilled over the boundaries of the mainland and continued building in an insatiable quest for progress.
