Sculpture by the Sea

Cottesloe, Beach, Perth, Western Australia.


In the work the small number of stitches in the centre supports the structure of the outer
perimeter, increasing or decreasing the number of stitches greatly affects the
form of the sculpture. Small changes in the centre create large differences
around the edge.

Using the analogy of each stitch representing a person, then the small number of
stitches/people in the centre of the work are responsible for the decisions
that affect many others in outward radiating circles. Each stitch entwines and
supports the next stitch like our own relationships.
