More Sculptures from the McClelland Survey 2014

One made a noise, one had water that tinkled into a little pool, one glittered with light and Phil Price’s sculpture moved in the wind. There are huge and small ones, and sculptures to attract different age groups. I can’t wait to take the grandchildren in the holidays. Shall show a couple  of photos to show the gallery and the excitement in the grounds.

      Matt Calvert is a Tasmanian sculptor. ‘Die back’ is made of laminated plate glass. His early work was done using glass from crashed cars. There’s a luminescence about this one, with the sombre layering of black.

    Absolutely wonderful !! – with the exception of the monkey. The rest – sublime !!! Is ‘Die Back’ covering a stump, do you think ? – not that it matters. How does a metalworker actually make something as beautiful as ‘Orbital’ ? I love the background of the real environment – especially with regard to items like ‘Enviroglyphic’ … Oh, it’s all marvellous, Ba !!! I wouldn’t be able to be dragged away.

      It’s interesting that you should mention Lisa Roet’s monkey. She won the prize a few years ago with a rather large chimp,(that we thought looked like John Howard). We were discussing on the way home, how her work hasn’t progressed, and is doing what she knows and not discovering new things. This is the one that had the noises coming from it.
      I don’t think ‘Die back’ is coving a stump. I don’t know how ‘Orbital’ is made…and yes the environment really suits many of the works. By the way the second one in yesterday’s post won the $100,000 prize. Sorry I gave you a bum steer! It’s Matthew Harding with Void, and really worthy of the prize.

        It’s a formidable work, I think, in my ignorant way. It reminds me for some reason of Don Quixote – although where Sancho Panza is, I have no idea.
        I do like it; so I’m happy it won ! – I hope you two are …?

      Sorry M-R, a big misunderstanding this end. I’m glad that Matthew Harding won. We discussed the other one winning because the sculptor was being filmed and photographed in front of his work and when Chris said this morning that it was the one we thought it was, I got the wrong end of the stick. The 1st prize was my choice!! Yeh!

      Maggie, you were right, this was waiting for moderation. I shall have to check from time to time! Lovely to hear from you.
      The gallery has several Phil Price’s sculptures and they are all kinetic works which move with the wind, so create a gentle and peaceful movement.

        Yes, I went through 65 pages, and that’s enough, but lots of pink ones, so thanks for that prompt. I probably wouldn’t ever have looked! Phil Price is a New Zealander, so i’m sure he’ll never know!!

    That is so wonderful presence and valuable sculptures. In Europe the great religious architectural sculptures of the Romanesque and Gothic periods form integral parts of the church buildings, and often a single cathedral incorporates thousands of figural and narrative carvings.
