September 9, 2012 – Eagle

We had a picnic at the National Aboretum in Canberra on a beautiful crispy spring day. This sculpture ‘Nest III‘ by Richard Moffatt is mostly made from recycled farm machinery.


July 30, 2012 – RTIST gallery

I stroll down St Edmunds Rd a few times each week, but normally I walk on the other side of the road.  Sometimes a different perspective can really open your eyes, as today I saw RTIST gallery in its full glory.

Now I just have to head inside.

July 15, 2012 – Playing on a sculpture

The Heide Museum of Modern Art is somewhere I’d been harbouring a secret desire to visit. We didn’t get the full day there (Amelia tends to slow us up) but what we did see was awesome, and it deserves multiple viewings. I loved the Ken Whisson: As If exhibition that we were lucky to catch on its final day.

The museum is set on six-hectares with a fantastic sculpture garden. I snapped this pic of of children playing on Inge King’s “Rings of Saturn” (2005-6).

March 27, 2012 – “Muscle Boy”, Grosvenor Reserve

I pulled the pram over for an unscheduled feed today and stumbled upon Grosvenor Reserve (god bless google maps on iphone).

This pumped up Muscle Boy is a sculpture by local artist David Bromley.
