Sculpture by the Sea III ..



Once again embiggening will show the cloudettes sculptures to their awesomesauce best. Seriously if a word like awesomesauce can make it's way into the Oxford Dictionionary, my 'cloudettes' should be an absa-bloody-lutely shoe-in right :) Above 'Lucky Bay' one of a cluster of three 'marine navigational-marker inspired forms' by Fremantle based sculptor Tony Jones. Below 'Gate to the Beach' by Japanese artist Keizo Ushio couldn't be more appropriately placed..


 The fluid movement and shape of 'Undulation' below, created in hammer and press formed marine grade aluminum by Victorian sculptor Benjamin Storch was popular with children looking for a 'hidey-hole', children have a wonderful way of ensuring that we don't get too pretentious about art don't you think:)
 

'Pig of Fortune #2' below, a whimsical piece created in stainless steel by South Korean artist Tae-GeunYand.. 'since the pig is a much loved symbol of fortune and fecundity, the artist endeavours to exhibit the coexistence between humans and animals'.. I kind of like how it looks as if this porcine pretty is in the process of swallowing the fence :)


The bronze work below aptly named 'Fun' :) the work of Thai sculptor Naidee Changmoh 'who for many years has been working in a kindergarten. His artworks are inspired by the pureness and happiness of the children'.. what's not to love about that!


The early morning shadows made it a bit tricky to get a really good shot of the bronze/granite work below, 'Catch Me' by Danish sculptor Keld Moseholm, such a delight and definitely a crowd favourite.. madam's dainty jump pose and monsieur's 'determined to catch her whatever the consequences stance' guaranteed a smile :) Keeping a little something back for weekend reflections but will show a few last beach scenes tomorrow. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  2. Wow, another great selection of artistic endeavors. My all time favorite is "Undulation". It makes me think of the waves on the sea crashing to shore. However, "Catch Me" made me grin in a big way!

  4. You are such a wonderful patron of the arts, and I love it that you share your artistic finds with us. I think developing new vocabulary is definitely a fine skill. Hoping to find "hug a tree" image you discussed a while back, but it has been so gloomy and rainy here that I can't seem to find a good image for it!!

  6. I'm rather puzzled by "Catch Me" - how the hell did she get up there in the first place?

  25. Every year I enjoy seeing your shots of the sculptures at the sea. Nice ones. I particularly like the jumping woman and catching man.

    Thanks for your visits while I have been away. Looks like you did something to your knee while I wasn't around to protect you . . .
