Sculpture by the Sea II ..



Thought I'd mix it up a bit this year and start from the end of the groyne on Cottesloe Beach and work back towards the Indiana.The lofty 5mt sculpture above created in corten steel by renowned Israeli born Zadock Ben-David titled appropriately 'Big Boy' can be seen from the furthest away point of the beach.I was happy to get the gentleman sitting on the rocks to give an idea of prospective..


Below 'Leaden Hearts' by WA artist Dennise Pepper, using hand embossed copper shim (repousse) copper rivets and nails, fiberglass, timber and paint. 'Journeys are intimate stories of those who leave and those left behind.. women were brought to the Australian colony, along with commodities copper and lace, useful and beautiful, accepting extreme difficulty for a vestige of freedom, solvency and respectability'..


This was definitely one of my favourites, I am a lover of curves and sensuous shapes. Titled 'Tears of Joy' it was created by Melbourne based sculptor Ben Fasham using stainless steel and bronze.. the sculptor 'continuing his exploration of balance and curved forms'.. Tres cool framing shape :) More to come.. happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  1. Fine collection of sculptures by the sea. I especially like the boat sculpture. Looks like it might even float.

  10. We visited Cottesloe yesterday and as usual there are some great sculptures. I loved the Big Boy and Tears of Joy was also a favourite. Something that would look great in a garden!

  11. I like all the sculptures very much. Big boy is very special made with its own shadow.

  12. The first one really is impressive with his height, Grace. The boat is beautiful, as is it´s story. The tear is very vivid, too. Can´t wait to see more!

  13. Wow, these are all great so it's hard to pick just one as a favorite but if forced I'd have to say the last one. I like the lines on that one too. However, that Big Boy is quite nice too. Actually, I like them all.

  15. I've lost my touch since my hiatus; since it has ended I am having trouble keeping the messages I post. Often they just disappear into thin cyberair! I always enjoy your images of public art that yo find.
