We noticed this statue of a sailor at Elizabeth Quay in Perth. It is by Charles Smith and Joan Walsh-Smith and will eventually be part of the Australian Sailor Monument in Fremantle, honouring all the men and women who have played a role in Australia’s maritime history.
Today is the last day of Sculpture by the Sea at Perth’s Cottesloe Beach. Here are two more artworks that we liked, both with an environmental focus.
The giant soft drink can above is “Cansumerism” by Hayley Bahr and Tim Keevil, and the sculpture below is “Plastic Paradise” by Kathy Allam – it’s made out of plastic soft drink bottles.
Here are some more artworks from Sculpture by the Sea at Perth’s Cottesloe Beach, all with ocean views through holes. The sculpture above is “Oushi Zokei” by Keizo Ushio (spot the amusing anagram). The one below is “The Window of the Future” by Sang-Sug Kim.
And this one is “Pause” by April Pine.
As you might guess from the shadow, the person in the sculpture above is a surfer. He looks quite different from the side.
Here are three pieces of sculpture that we liked at Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe. They all play with aspects of light and transparency, entrancing the eye. The artwork above is “Horizon (2013)” by Lucy Humphrey, and this one is “Untitled Coral (aqua)” by Alessandra Rossi.
And this is “Narration of the Sea” by Lei Huan.
We went to Perth’s popular Cottesloe Beach yesterday to see the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.
There were plenty of other people enjoying the sand, sea, sculpture and sunshine. The event runs through to 20 March, so you need to hurry up if you haven’t been to see it yet.
As sunset approached, the artworks in Sculpture at Bathers were transformed into interesting silhouettes. That’s “Proto Persona” by Richie Kuhaupt above, and “Dispersal Machine” by Tania Spencer below.
And this is Penelope’s Web by Kevin Draper.
A few days back we went to Bathers Beach in Fremantle to see the biennial Sculpture at Bathers exhibition. Many of the sculptures are right on the sand, near the water. We liked the slightly enigmatic “Fremantle Doctor” (above) by Russell Sheridan, and “Port and Starboard” by Tony Jones.
“Spitfire” by Michael O’Doherty was amusingly mounted on a pole from an old Hills Hoist and placed out in the water.
And “Generator” by Tom de Munk-Kerkmeer shone colourfully in the late afternoon sunshine.
