Bronwyn gave her artist talk deep in the rainforest valley at the inaugural Sculpture at Scenic World exhibition. Her pods nestle comfortably on the forest floor, a still life in the landscape, the ancient stones hold tales of ancient geology and elemental dreaming of new life.
You can see her work & more being set up in this youtube clip

It was a magic day to quote from Peter S Beagle’s short story “The Rock in the Park”
(“Sleight of Hand” Tachyon Publications 2011)

“… the artist isn’t the magic. The artist is the sight, the artist is someone who knows magic when he sees it. The magic doesn’t care whether it’s seen or not – that’s the artist’s business.

And magic’s not an all-the-time thing, you’re never entitled to magic – not ever, no matter how good you are. Best you can do – all you can do – is make sure you’re ready when it happens. If.”

    wow, thanks for sharing this – the sculpture is great! how lucky you are to have visited

    and i loved the shot of the three sisters, i never got to see them the day i visited … it was foggy! but i comforted myself with a fantastic jug of hot chocolate in katoomba, the best ever! and it was 25 years ago
