Whiteley sculpture

This sculpture by Brett Whitely rises from The Domain, behind the Art Gallery of NSW. It's called "Almost Once" made of blackbutt timber and fibreglass consisting of two large ‘redhead’ matches, one live and one burnt, on a concrete base (conceived in 1968 and finished in 1991).

Whitely was one of Australia's pre-eminent artists of the second half of the 20th century. He died in 1992.

I'm heading home across the Pacific from LA today.
