Tamarama Beach - Just saying Tamarama makes me smile. And I smiled all day when I went to the Scupture By The Sea art show. This year was distinctly dog oriented. Or maybe it was movement. The piece above was perfectly integrated into the landscape, the one below used the changing nature of the sea foam to color the dog's mask.
One of the most technical was a piece featuring Andy Warhol, made from bent chicken wire. The artist took such care and the lines were perfect. Sculpture really appeals to the craftsman in me and I'm often awed by the skillfulness of each piece. Using fencing was a great way illustrate Warhol, a man who kept his walls high and people at arm's length.
