LASERCUTS

runningMan.jpg

After spending almost 8 months sitting idle in the paintshop, the LEDA trainstation public art commission sculptures are finally complete. They are a series of twelve lasercut figures in a run cycle. The figures themselves are a loose and slightly comical interpretation of the massive power lines in the Kwinana rockingham area. Soon they will be installed into the newly completed trainstation.Strangley I feel kinda flat. It actually been a bit of a anti-climax, maybe the long wait and the slightly lighter-than-expected orange has dulled the impact. Sometimes I look at things I make and wonder if I really made them. Old art can be akin to remembering intimacy with an ex-lover; it can sometimes resemble an old faded photograph.
