Continuing our tour of the Sculptures at Cottesloe Beach, here are a few more photos, of some of the sculptures that I enjoyed seeing.
This next one called "Wave 1", by a WA artist, Annette Thas, looked a bit like a soccer goal covered in thousands of Barbie dolls! Yes, dolls, I had to get up close to figure out what it was! A bit creepy I suppose but it won the People's Choice Prize of $2500, so it was a popular one. It also won the Kid's choice prize of course!
Another very popular exhibit and one of my favourites, was "Permanent Sunset" by Argentinian artist, Alejandro Propato. Made with yellow, orange and red nylon wire strung onto pipes, it was dedicated to the beautiful sunsets at Cottesloe Beach.
This was another of my favourites - also by a WA artist - Helen Seiver, called "Rescheduling Permanence" it was built out of wooden sticks and crocheted plastic bags, representing the impact of plastic bags on our oceans.
I had seen plastic bags being re-used but not this artistically, the flowers looked quite beautiful actually!
Maybe an idea for a kid's cubby house in the garden? What do you think?
"Fetch" - a few mirrored dogs, by Melbourne duo The Winged Collective, was cute,
I just thought that they were almost invisible in the sand, they might have been more visually attractive if they were on the grass, where the reflection could be seen.
Another exhibit by a WA artist, Stella Onderwater - "Shelter 2" was made up of towels with names of famous Australian beaches.
Hope you enjoyed the sculpture show and I leave you with some shots of Cottesloe beach with lots of sculptures scattered all over the sand and grass.
