The 11th annual Sculpture by the Sea had so many wonderful entries this year.. 'mi no 5' above by Wendi Zhang (China) was exceptional. I'm not sure exactly how many flamingos, created in steel mesh there were but suffice to say they did indeed 'gather shape to present a beautiful scene, creating a harmonious ecological visual effect'! Below, constructed from thousands of tiny, hand made bricks 'vessel' by Andrew Burton (England). In the second shot Aimee and Amy taking different viewpoints and the third 'Penelope's web' by Kevin Draper (WA) 'based on an ancient symbol that relates to the mythological figure of Penelope who wove the thread of destiny in the old world'.
The two below made me smile.. 'over under through around' by Peter Zappa (WA), don't you like my clever framing of the life buoy :).. and why when I saw 'mr melancholy' by Paul Stanwick-Wright (WA) made from a shipping container did I think of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh :)
I'll leave you today with this quirky piece by Annette Thas (WA) 'dame cockatoo and entourage' the work 'questions Australian identity, what we are told it should be,what it is and what we would like it to be' .. starring Aimee as Dame Cockatoo :) Hope you're enjoying the visit to the beach, more tomorrow. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. the expression 'art is in the eye of the beholder' was never more true at an event like this!
