Inside Australia

Just after dawn

The sculptures glow

in the early sun.

We walk

tracing lines

from figure to figure

in the waterless lake

 

Lake Ballard, a salt lake in Western Australia’s Goldfields, is home to 51 metal figures sculpted by Antony Gormley. He’s perhaps most famous for The Angel of the North, a steel sculpture 20 metres high with a 54 metre wingspan, located in Gateshead in the North East of England.

Sunsets and Sculptures by the Sea

On a warm summer evening I feel so privileged to be able to wander down to my local beach and see Sculpture by the Sea, in one of three places that hosts this international exhibition.

For a few weeks, the beach and foreshore of Cottesloe is a mass of people mingling with each other, swimming and eating picnics amidst a large diverse collection of sculptures.

Cottesloe, Western Australia, has hosted this annual exhibition for the last eleven years and it certainly appears to fulfill the dream of the founders in providing a major free artistic event that encourages a sense of community. The ephemeral nature of the exhibition adds to its popularity.

Only a few kilometers away in Fremantle, another Sculpture event on Bathers Beach exhibits West Australian artists.

Made of salt this sculpture is truly ephemeral as it is gradually eroded by the Indian Ocean.

As the sun drops the surreal qualities of some of the exhibits add to their beauty.

As darkness falls the sculptures are momentarily silhouetted, then gone.
