At Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe 2016

We are very excited to have been participating in Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe, Western Australia. Our work Bubble (A Fountain of Zero) was displayed along with works by other sculptors and installation artists, as well as works by international artists. We had a very demanding schedule in order to prepare our work to be transported interstate, by air, and then to install it on the sand of Cottesloe beach to be displayed from March 4th until March 20th.

It was a great display of sculptures on the beach and surrounding areas and it was certainly a great showcase for our sculpture to be a part of such a high profile event interstate. It was exciting to have our sculpture viewed, “oo-ed” and photographed by the very many local, interstate and international visitors during the event. Another joy of travelling to WA to participate was meeting and getting to know the other artists, seeing a small part of the surrounding areas and participating in the education programme workshops for school kids. Some schools travelled for several hours to view the sculptures and participate in the workshops, taking back their own works of art.

We are looking forward to participate in other sculpture events such as this, in the near future.

Our artwork on the Greenway in Leichhardt

Along with the works of some accomplished sculptors and installation artists, our work Bubble (A Fountain of Zero) was commissioned and displayed as part of the Art on the Greenway program of Leichhardt Council. The display of sculptures and installations was a part of the annual Leichhardt Open Studio Trail program in 2016. Our work was on display from Wednesday March 9th to March 20th this year.

We were delighted to participate in this opportunity to work with the Leichhardt Council on a such exciting project which displayed some artworks along the Greenway and added some visual excitement for local residents who regularly cycle and walk along the path. We look forward to further opportunities to work in a similar capacity.

Fanfair at Sculpture in the Vineyards 2015

This year our new kinetic work FanfAir, made from recycled fan blades, aluminium and wood is spinning in town. Located just outside Wollombi Village Wines cellar door, it is visible from the road, the pub and playground/facilities.

Sculpture in the Vineyards opens on Halloween, Sat 31st October and runs for one month. Well worth a trip up, plus you can enjoy visits to the local vineyards.

Here is a video of the work in action

Sculpture in the Vineyards 2014

Our work Fountain of Zero has been installed in the Sculpture in the Vineyards exhibition of 2014. It is a work about the environment and reuse of materials as well as a work about creating something unique and distinctive that will sit well in the environment it is installed within.

This work has been in the making for a few months now and the installation is a culmination of a lot of engineering, design and craftsmanship (can we say craft person?). After the original idea was conceived the work slowly took shape through imagination and creative engineering, as well as sheer determination.

A major part of the work is the top half of soft drink (soda) bottles which we had to cut and shape to fit our needs. To do this, we had to collect over 150 bottles through consuming large quantities of soft drink and mineral water as well as through raiding recycle bins in our neighbourhood.

The exhibition will be officially opened on 25 October 2014 and will continue for around a month. Come and see our work as well as the other wonderful sculptures and installations dotting the vineyards around Wollombi, NSW. Our work is installed at the Undercliff Winery, 152 Yango Creek Road,  in Wollombi.
