wide brown land
This artwork celebrates Dorothea Mackellar's popular Australian poem My Country which was written in 1908. The sculptural forms that make up the work are inspired by the cursive style of Mackellar's own hand-writing. The artwork frames a wide vista that stretches across the National Arboretum Canberra to the hills that mark Canberra's western and southern boundaries.

wind sculpture Artist - Ernst Fries
Title - Wind Sculpture
Medium - Stainless steel and painted steel
Location - Civic
Funded By -
Commissioned - 1981

Wind Sculpture
This work is a fine example of a style of kinetic sculpture popular through the late 1970’s. It marks the entry to 'the Boulevard' development which was anticipated to be an international retail precinct for Canberra. Whilst the Boulevard never fulfilled this promise, the first floor open air plaza is a fascinating example of 1970’s planning for public space.

small Winds of Light 01 Artist - Peter Blizzard
Title - Winds of Light
Medium - Steel, brass, aluminium
Location - Belconnen
Funded By - artsACT
Commissioned - 2011

Winds of Light
This sculpture is the last public artwork of the well known artist, Peter Blizzard. His practice was unique in his use of contrasting materials as an ongoing investigation into the relationship of nature to the human spirit. He believed that we should venerate and respect what we have. This work is the artist’s response to the effect that grandeur, colour, light, texture and form within the natural landscape have on the wellbeing of the human spirit.

Windstone - a trail of a cloud Artist - Koichi Ishino
Title - Windstone - A Trail of a Cloud
Medium - Stainless steel, granite
Location - Civic
Funded By - artsACT
Commissioned - 2010

Windstone - A Trail of a Cloud
This sculpture combines materials that have very different visual and tactile qualities. The solidity and surface detail of natural granite is a sharp contrast to the ethereal, mirrored surface of stainless steel. Windstone brings a sensation of the material and immaterial together in one object. The artist's work has been described as an exploration of the experience of land and sky, and the concious and unconcious.
