Sculpture occupies real space like we do… you walk around it and relate to it almost as another person or another object.  (Chuck Close)

LM and I were up bright and early on Friday morning to check out the sixteenth annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition on the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk. It is a spectacular example of how to successfully make art accessible to everyone and is now one of the most significant sculpture exhibitions in the world.  The fact that it is a free public event makes it even more impressive, I think.

If you ever find yourself in Sydney in late October, it is definitely something for your ‘to do’ list. Until then, here are a few happy snaps…
