Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2018 Supported by Axolotl

Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2018
Axolotl was once again proud to have been Supporting Partner of Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi for 2018.

This year we provided material sponsorship and artisan support to a further four artists - Michael Le Grand, Lucy Barker, Jim Flook and Rhiannon West. Each selected based on the quality of their concepts and our capabilities to assist with their diverse aesthetics. It has been an exciting and challenging process supporting each artist to realise their vision and reinforces our own commitment and passion to support the arts.

The 22nd annual exhibition was enjoyed on the stunning coastal walk between Bondi and Tamarama. It is the world's largest free public exhibition and transforms the coast into a 2km long outdoor gallery, featuring over 100 sculptures by Australian and international artists.

Michael Le Grand, 'Guardian' Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2018
Michael Le Grand, 'Guardian', Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2018. Materials: Mild steel, Axolotl Bronze Rust Patina.

Guardian is the balancing act of found and shaped metal objects formed to establish a nominal totemic orientation.

Lucy Barker, 'Outlet' Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2018
Lucy Barker, 'Outlet', Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2018. Materials: Electrical cable, wire frame, Axolotl Bronze Florentine Patina.

A dense and complex tangle of discarded electrical cables in an intentionally ambiguous form. Outlet is constructed in a lozenge shape that could be a missile, a seed, or perhaps a lump of human detritus rolled by the sea and washed up on the rocks. With connotations of consumption and entrapment, its worm-like tangled surface is visually perplexing in its complexity.

Jim Flook, 'Swerve One' Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2018
Jim Flook, 'Swerve One', Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2018. Materials: Mild steel, paint.

Contemplation of unfolding and unpredictable swerves of life's complexities.

Rhiannon West, 'Flight' Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2018
Rhiannon West, 'Flight', Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2018. Materials: Stainless steel, dichroic glass, mild steel, paint, Axolotl Stone.

A playful and inviting sculpture for that 'Instagram moment'. Reflective and vibrant; dichroic lenses form the "tips" to the wings which reflect and refract the light.
