A few of our favourite things…

Now a welcome annual event in the Blue Mountains cultural calender, this year’s Sculpture at Scenic World is truly delightful. The beauty and challenges of exhibiting in the landscape of the Jurassic rainforest has clearly inspired ¬†local and international artists alike to produce profound and engaging works. Of the 31 sculptures in this years exhibition, Cloudscape’s favourites included Kay Andonopoulos’ delicately installed reference to Australia’s iconic Hills Hoist, David Sumalis’ reverberant sound installation and a giant, earthenware ‘fallen moth’ by this year’s winner of the Scenic World Acquistive Award – Jacqueline Spedding.

‘Tree line – a diminishing landscape’ Kay Andonopoulos (wax, hessian)

‘Three Phases of the Dark Moon’ David Sumalis (sound)

‘Vestiges of the Forgotten’ Jacqueline Spedding (vitrified earthenware clay, charcoal, wire)

A wonderful, kid friendly, unique and relaxing way to view some of Australia’s and the world’s finest artists’ work, Sculpture at Scenic World is on until 18 May 2014 – enjoy!
