Work stands up well
SCULPTOR’S ART STRIKES CHORD
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.
