Once an illusion now a nightmare..



There's something about trains.. even goods trains as here in Fremantle. Glimpses through the carriages above show a section of the artwork that I showed here, when you click you will see the incroyable Arcs D’Ellipses, once an illusion now a nightmare! The yellow painted foil is proving a delicate and costly business to remove without damaging the exterior of the many heritage buildings along High Street. Ah the price of art.. this installation did bring many visitors into Freo and for this reason I think it might have been left in situ a little too long making it even harder to remove..


This shot just because I like it and it shows a glimpse down my favourite street in Freo Phillimore Street. So many fabulous heritage buildings are a visual delight. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. It will be costly and difficult to fix for sure Grace!
    What a pity as it was quite pretty, I had no idea it was meant to be a temporary work of art.

  6. Too bad the art has become an eye sore. It looked great as it was.

  7. Someone made a costly mistake. Maybe they should have left it alone.

  8. I remember that art piece and how much I loved it in your photos. It's too bad that it has proven to be a problem to erase. I for one, am hoping the artists will come up with a safer way to create this kind of illusion in the future. It sure has an impact.

  17. I remember that art piece. Would be a horror to remove it just for a paint.

  18. I remember seeing your post about it and it was amazing to see. I do love trains and am fortunate to live near some railroad tracks. I love hearing them pass by at night, especially when they blow their horns as they cross the road.
