Rhinos on the Move  April 26, 2014

Painted Rhinos are moving around Sydney to raise awareness and stop the extinction of this animal.
The exhibition is part of a wider initiative between Taronga Zoo and the Wild Rhino Art Project to stop the Rhino being poached into extinction.

The new North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club building is inspired by its beach environment with wave-like lines and tiles sparking like the white Bondi sand.

 

Kids all over 4.5 mil sculpture. May 6, 2014.

It’s often said that art is in the eye of the beholder.

It seems that for kids the installation in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden is not a sculpture but a play area.

The sculpture, Wurrungwuri, is valued at 4.5 million and was donated by The Johnson Estate.

The Aboriginal name, Wurrungwuri, means “this side – on this side of the water”

The sculpture was created by Chris Booth. The sculpture is in two parts.The first part is a wave-like sandstone form which appears to emerge from the bedrock to cascade down the lawn towards Sydney Harbour

The second part is built from 16,000 threaded quartz pebbles, in the pattern of a rare Aboriginal Shield, the “Sydney Shield”

In an email sent to members of the press Magnum Photo noted on 20th Oct 2014 the death of René Berri, 81: “It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Magnum photographer René Burri who passed away today”.
The Swiss photographer, who began working with Magnum as an associate in 1955 and became a full member in 1959, was well known for his work in Cuba, including his iconic portraits of Che Guevara.
In the photo of him below I think its a Leica M3 he is useing. Nice choice !

The Sydney Festival is on. Part of the festival is the Sydney Buddha by Zhang Huan at the Carriageworks. It is in two parts: an aluminium sculpture and an ash casting of it’s interior. It is a meditation on the brevity of life and the cycle of renewal and destruction.
Also at the Carriageworks is Inside There Falls. A labyrinth made of paper. With talc on the floor to write messages.

Dogman 11/03/2015.

Below are photos of a sculpture installed at the cafe across the road from my place at Bondi, Australia.

It’s a dog/human hybrid made from fiberglass. The dogman hybrid is meant to celebrate the spiritual relationship that exits between man and animal.

It was created by husband and wife team, Gille and Marc. Meeting in Hong Kong, she was a nurse from England and he, a boy from Melbourne, Australia. Seven days later they were married at the foothills of Mount Everest. They are now based in Sydney.
