Italian finale...



The last shots from Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe. Shaped in stainless steel by Italian artist Silvia Tuccimei titled  'passage secret' this work 'references the mirror as a symbol for a gateway or portal, absorbing, reflecting and distorting it's surroundings'. As it sits gleaming on the grassy slopes of Cottesloe Beach it seems to me that 'le passage secret' is honouring all of these promises! As Tuccimei has worked for many years in Paris it would not surprise me if mes amis français were already familiar with her art! I may have to take time-out for a few days, the forecast is for cooler temperatures so will take the opportunity to tame my out of control summer jungle garden :) Have a wonderful weekend, take care...

  10. The art work is beautiful and reminds me of the Chicago bean which has that mirror effect. What is that round circle of red on the beach?

  11. The reflections on the giant curved surface are fantastic - such a simple idea, yet so creative. Warm wishes from another Aussie who loves France

  12. Next year I suggest you enter your pictures, alongside a pretentious explanation, and you will win hands down as you have more talent than these 'artists!'

  13. You were right! That field looks much more impressive like this and I love its reflection!

  14. Lots of color and things to look at in that first photo. Hello Aimee!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh wow, the reflections! I could play with that all day long.

  16. I love the way you framed those colors in the top, and that lovely smile! Perth is art heaven, sigh. Good luck with the taming! (I so enjoyed 'Julie and Julia'! Meryl Streep is fantastic)

  17. That's a new take on reflections. It is quite attractive and I'd guess a lot of fun for folks walking by.

    Don't work too hard in your jungle or garden!

  18. Nice piece. Must be tough to keep it shiny out there.

  19. Art . . . Aimee . . . reflections? Could you fit any more into one post?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I agree with Jack - perfect shot of Aimee reflected!!

  21. I love the reflections in this one!

  22. This "mirror" was also one of my favourites, it would be very cool to have something like this in the garden!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Original and impressive. I'd like to spend half an hour photographing that.

  24. Great reflections . Its amazing how an artist every time finds a new way to express her/his ideas on a new way. Thanks for showing.

  25. What a lovely reflections, I enjoyed the exhibition very much.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This reflects well on the photographer !

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a fantastic work! I hope these pieces of public art find homes after this showing.

  28. I love this piece and the way it reflects its environment.

  29. Brings to mind the stainless bean in Chicago...great for reflections.
    Enjoy your break..and go dig in your garden

  30. I like the decorated beach and the reflection in the sculpture is great. Happy weekend to you too:)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Very nice reflections ... so bright !

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like the circle within a circle of the top shot.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Beautiful shiny shapes capturing the colours and light play surrounding. That would mean no photographer would capture the same image. How clever.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is the orange and red bit on the beach a separate work? If so, the two work together well. On the other hand, I don't appreciate the photo bomber, as we call them here, in the first picture.

  35. Preciosas las fotos que nos has dejado.

    Saludos.
