I didn't show the amazing sculpture here by Perth artist Alessandra Rossi that featured in Sculpture by the Sea because I wasn't sure if my shots were good enough. The early morning shade/light was tricky but it was one of my favourite pieces in the exhibition and I really wanted you to see it. Titled 'Untitled Coral (aqua)' the artist statement "a solitary young girl in a dress is inspired in part by the phenomenon of coral bleaching, something that occurs in nature when ocean water becomes too warm and coral begins to expel an algae giving it a white appearance. Additionally, the work grapples with modern issues of identity, functioning “as a metaphor for the patination and discoloration of emotion engendered by the digital era.” The translucent nature of the acrylic sculpture can be seen clearly pictured here when it was exhibited on Bondi Beach last year, superb! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. for anyone who still thinks climate change is fiction..
