SPRING SCULPTURE EXHIBITION

91 Bussell Highway

Friday 8th November – 6th December

 Four West Australian sculptors come together to showcase new works:

 Jo Broadhurst is a Margaret River artist who explores and constructs perceived Australian icons in both an historical and modern context. By using a combination of popular imagery and stereotypes, Broadhurst’s large ceramic figures question our thoughts on national identity and its relevance in a multi-cultural world.

Simon James –a well-known south west sculptor, uses combinations of metal and timber to express his love of the ocean and the magnificence of our landscape.

“After such a long dull winter, the warmth of the sunshine and its inspiration was profound and uplifting”.” The sun bought the colour back to the landscape and to my works.

Like tropical fish, or Birds of Paradise the warmth and colours of summer convey a sense of joy and wonder.

 Peter Zappa describes his sculptures as “borne of the West Australian landscape with vast open spaces, endless sky and meandering coastline”.

Zappa uses metal to “draw” in space thus setting an idea free in three dimensions.

 Peter Graham’s beautifully mastered bronze seahorse, depicts the fragility and strength of this mysterious creature whilst highlighting the interconnectedness of all aspects of our environment and the threatened fate of the seahorse along with other species, including our own.
