Work stands up well


Stirling Times - - News - Kate Leaver

STIR­LING sculp­tor April Pine is an emerg­ing artist in hot de­mand around Perth who is cur­rently work­ing on nine com­mis­sions.

Pine, a pro­fes­sional ar­chi­tect turned artist, will ex­hibit her piece Grounded at the Fine Art at Hale ex­hi­bi­tion for its 25th an­niver­sary this month.

“The work is an assembly of ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal sheets in­ter­sected to­gether to create a rigid and sin­gu­lar form,” she said.

“The fig­ure when viewed from a per­fect el­e­va­tion be­comes al­most like a draw­ing, em­body­ing a sil­hou­ette that con­nects it to the sur­round­ing land­scape.

“When lit up, the shad­ows of the fig­ure’s sil­hou­ette are pro­jected out­wards as though the fig­ure is leav­ing an im­pres­sion.”

Pine’s lat­est piece Pause, which is a sculp­ture of a surfer look­ing out to sea, has re­cently been do­nated to the Town of Cottes­loe and in­stalled on the beach­front.

“I feel very sup­ported as an emerg­ing artist in Perth,” she said.
