Sculpture by the Sea IV..



We arrived at Cottesloe Beach above to see Sculpture by the Sea at around 7.30am.. the light at this time although gorgeous is a wee bit tricky shadow-wise. As I mentioned last post a lot of the sculptures included in this outdoor exhibition are of a relevant theme, as is the work below by WA artist Kerrie Argent using upcycled/recycled knitted fabrics, calico and steel titled 'Homeless'.. 'mountainous excess of unwanted unloved textiles. Landfill homes for the homeless'..


Below, WA artist Anne Neil's  'Murmer' created using marine grade aluminum, the work 'suggests the vast number of shell like forms while remaining formally abstract'..


Below, looking back along the beach..


Below Oliver Stretton-Pow's 'Infrastructure 5'  using redwood, marine ply and bronze. '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'..


Slovakian sculptor Lubomir Mikle's impressive entry below created using coated mild steel and titled I.H.W.M.A , 2014  'transformation of my own work of art as a reaction to the dynamically changing nature of the environment'..


Ending today with a touch of whimsy and fun created by multi talented  NSW artist Margarita Sampson using steel, wood ply, structural foam, fiberglass and textiles and titled 'Dearest'.. the artist's statement.. 'Don't get too comfortable'..


... but look who did :) As always I begged asked Aimee to interact with some of the sculptures, this piece was calling out for a bit of interaction don't you think.. the funny thing was, that as soon as Aimee posed, people all around started snapping shots of her too, I wish I'd taken a shot of that :) Have saved a few for Weekend Reflections, hope that you're enjoying.. happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  5. Love the sculptures on the beach. We have beautiful beaches here but our island is eroding so fast, I don't think they'd last more than a few years here. Great post!

  8. Another impressive collection of creative and inspiring art. I like all of these including that last one that Aimee is enjoying. "Don't get too comfortable" is a perfect comment to make about it. I'd be very wary sitting there surrounded by all those slinky things.

  13. What a variety. Those cones make me think of Easter Island sculpture and Native American tents. And we couldn't have that sofa in our gome - it would make me queasy.

  14. The pink sea monster davenport would be great to have one house.

  15. Wow, Grace, I simply fail to make a fav here, they´re all fantastic!! The "transformation..." seems to ask "touch me", no?
    Yes, I could imagine people taking a shot along with you of the last one :-) Just a combination too perfect!

  20. All great again, Aimee fitted right in with that sculpture.
    When I went there I hardly had the chance to take one without anyone sitting there, there was a queue...
