Two for the price of one
Typical, you go for weeks without a blog post, and then two come along at once! This one is because I spent the afternoon out at Tai Tapu with Lytteltonwitch, at a sculpture exhibition, and took very many photos, so I thought I’d better get them edited and posted before they get added to the long list of things I mean to do but never quite get round to.
The exhibition was really interesting. It was held in a large country garden, and the sculptures ranged from huge monoliths dominating the lawn to tiny glass figures hidden among the trees. Some of the pieces live in the garden permanently, but most were for sale, but with prices starting in the thousands, I was definitely just there to look, not to buy!
Here’s a few of the pieces that particularly caught my eye:
Llew Summers, Haven of Souls (2017)
Robyn Webster, Turning Point (2016)
Anna Korver, Impossible staircase (2016)
(This one wasn’t in the catalogue, so I’ve got no idea who created it, or what it’s called, but it amused me)
Matt Williams, Infinity (2016)
Ben Foster, Infinity (2014)
Jeff Thomson, Mahoe (2017)
Doug Neil, The Rocks (2013)
Annabel Menzies-Joyce and friends, The Fertility Goddess Grove (2013)
Neil Dawson, Vortex (2016)
Llew Summers, It’s A Topsy Turvy World (2010)
Bing Dawe, A Landscape with Too Many Holes, Waiting for St Francis – A Gateway (2015)
