Perth artist Denise Pepper has exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea many times before and describes her new piece as an 'opportunity to explore our fascination for what is shiny and glitters'. This was my favourite sculpture and my kids liked the reflective nature of the work, plus you can hear it gently move in the breeze.
Elizabeth Kelly - Macrocosmic Series: Oceania Sphere
Elizabeth Kelly's sculpture was created by joining lots of triangular-shaped glass sections of pressed glass together. Each sphere is cradled in a cylindrical steel frame and the sections and Oceania is actually part of the three-piece series.
Bongsoo Kim's Thoughts of Pinocchio was another favourite, especially with the kids. The South Korea artist has worked on a theme relating to the duplicity of human beings for some time. This is a big artwork and you'll most likely be able to quite comfortably stand under its nose.
Japanese artists Osamu Ohnishi and Masako Ohnishi have created this very cool artwork that you can walk inside. There's actually an open door on the side. No doubt the groups of school kids who will visit the exhibition will enjoy this one.
Anne Neil is another WA-based whose early work in jewellery continues to influence her art. She Sells Sea Shells is made from aluminium and is in a similar style to her other artworks that you may have seen around Perth - at Kings Park, Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital and the District Court.
