easel windframe (Sculpture By The Sea 2009)

First, thanks for the birthday greetings from all my lovely friends!

Tim Prentice is from the USA. His work is made of aluminium, and is 600cm x 300cm x 400cm.

The artists says: "I take it as an article of faith that the air around us moves in ways that are organic, whimsical, and unpredicatable. I therefore assume that if I were to abdicate the design to the wind, the work would take on these same qualities. The architect in me studies matters of scale and proportion. The engineer minimizes friction to make the wind visible. The artist wants to understand its changing shape. Meanwhile, the child wants to play."

I was lucky enough to see this work as the rising sun caught the shiny metallic surfaces and turned some of the silvery aluminium pieces to gold.


  1. It is such a stunning backdrop to this exhibition, isn't it. I shake my head in wonderment every time I do the Bronte to Bondi walk.

  2. Belated happy birthday to you Ms. Sally! Hope it was splendid.

    I love what this artist has to say and enjoy seeing his work in motion here. Your capture is fun and striking with the silver and gold. Wish I could see it in person. What a feat to create this!

  3. I really like this one and certainly even better in the spectacular location.

  4. Excellent shot. I love the place in which it kept.

  5. Belated birthday wishes. The sunrise on this is just lovely, very different to when I saw it.
