Beach art a big hit

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

ART and the beach com­bine with more than 80 home­grown WA artists tak­ing part in Sculp­ture at Bathers.

Scores of large sculp­tures are scat­tered on the beach, court­yard, board­walks, paths and lime­stone cliffs, while smaller pieces are on dis­play in­side Ki­dogo Art­house.

Bel­mont artist Jon Tarry cre­ated Comet Land­ing, a 150cm by 150cm stain­less steel and bronze sculp­ture, for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

He shaped the piece us­ing an­cient lost wax bronze cast­ing and in­dus­trial weld­ing, a sur­face of mir­rored stain­less steel re­flect­ing the sky above.

Placed on the sand, it rep­re­sents some­thing an­cient, ex­ist­ing both at the begin­ning of the uni­verse yet also in the mo­ment it is seen by the viewer.

Sculp­ture at Bathers is at Bathers Beach un­til March 12.
