Sculpture by the Sea

‘Journey Series #6’ by Kris Coad

finalist in the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize 2016
this piece made my hair stand on end, touching a deep place in my soul never felt before

Artist’s Statement
“Journey… what do we take… what do we need… run… There is a moment between what was and what is to come, an immeasurable space between two things as they transition into and between one to the other. The gap, the breath, the space between… These pieces are an expression of this moment.”

visiting her website I realized her her bone china feathers had blown me away a few years back at Planet Furniture
the show is on til October 30th
(this photo is from Woollahra Sculpture Prize website, mine did not do the work justice)
