Form of Scenery (Sculpture By The Sea 24)


This sculpture is simply amazing. It's called Form of Scenery and is by Japanese artist Koichi Ishino. made of marble and stainless steel.

The first time I saw this, it didn't move me, and that's because it was a grey dawn. The following week I came back - and WOW! look at that sunrise reflected in the mirrored curve and planes! I've put more pictures of this one on Sydney Daily Photo Extra. It also reminds me of this installation in Monte Carlo.

  2. This so simple its brilliant! I'm sure the artist would disagree about it being simple, but you know what I mean! A great way to show the sky for SWF :)

  20. When I looked at the first photograph I thought it had to be by the same artist as the one in Monaco - he has installed that Sky Mirror in several cities. But no, I see it's by another artist and how beautifully you've photographed it. Your sky scapes are just fabulous, Sally.

    And no, I didn't know about the discovery of a mass grave near to Fromelles. How absolutely awful. I do like the photo you linked to - and yes, didn't she look French and oh so chic.
