inspire // stickwork

we took the kids into the city to have a look at the ngv kids corner at fed square and to check out stickwork by patrick dougherty.

the placement of the sitcks creates a swirling sense of movement which reminded me a lot of the way water can flaten long grass as it moves downhill towards a water course. i was also surprised by the variation in the colours of the willow bark.

it's an amazing piece of construction and in my expereince, artworks you can touch, feel and walk around in are few and far between. stickwork will be in place utill early 2013, so there is plenty of time to check it out ... definitely worth a visit if you're nearby.
