Banner at Porcupine Ridge
Banner was first titled Tag and was shown at Mori Gallery in 2004.
Subsequently it was exhibited at Sculpture by The Sea in 2006 with revisions.
The sculpture had been in storage at Putney since 2006. Stuart Purves, from Australian Galleries invited me to place the work in his sculpture park at Porcupine Ridge, in Victoria. I have just returned from there, making what I hope to be final adjustments of integrating the new elements in the work.
This history is further illustration of how a work takes a while to find its shape and its place in the world. It may emerge the work has been overworked.
This new sculpture Park has around thirty sculptures installed beautifully on stone plinths. Many of Australia's finest sculptors have works there. The sculpture park is yet to be opened to the public.
