The 2010 Heysen Sculpture Biennial was a finalist for the Adelaide Fringe Award for the 'Best Exhibition By A Collective'. Congratulations and thank you to all artists, Alison Brown and Allan Campbell for your efforts in making the show such a success.

The opening was a great gathering and celebration of the Biennial with over 340 people attending.

The 2010 Heysen Sculpture Biennial B5 is on for the 5th occasion, during the Adelaide Festival of the Arts and the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Installations and sculpture by 25 Adelaide and Hills artists show their response to 'Homage to Nature' in the landscape and property of famous landscape painter Hans Heysen at Hahndorf.

The work will be on show for a period of 2 months after the Fringe ends, allowing more people to view the work. Most works are for sale.

Homage

An assemblage of cafeteria chairs, POA

This work explores the notion of all life as a continual assemblage and reassemblage of stuff. Stacking is the specific feature of this piece, Homage. The homage being made is to one of Heysen's candlebark gums, a magnificent assemblage of matter in the far corner of the Cedars property.

Uncertain Memories 

Glass and building materials, $12,000

The present is not necessarily sound evidence of that which was. A given landscape view may mask rather than reveal what previously stood on that hill or beside this creek.

Peter SYNDICAS

Four Mile Beach

Origin of twig, Port Douglas QLD. Bronze cast $6,410

Peter Syndicas is obsessed with fractals - infinite patterns replicated throughout all forms of nature. From cracks in the earth, to human arteries and the palms of our hands. He sculpts the forms found in twigs primarily as it enables him to view these fractals from the widest perspective. Defining abstract human forms within his twigs he enables the viewer to observe them from a different perspective. He then magnifies these forms, and immortalises them in bronze. A stark contrasts to the fragile nature of these delicate twigs, some no larger that a few centimetres in length.
