ezra's ounce (Sculpture By The Sea 2009)

This intriguing work by Orest Keywan is made of steel and polymer.
The art critic in The Australian, said:
"Orest Keywan's Ezra's Ounce seems to be a meditation on the predicament of his artform: at the foot of what appears to be the wreck of a classic modernist steel sculpture lies a massive face, like part of a colossal ancient statue. One thinks of T. S. Eliot's line at the end of The Waste Land: "These fragments I have shored against my ruin."


  1. Thanks for giving us all the explanations of the artworks Sally. I only photographed them. It's great to learn the stories behind them.
