Axolotl are once again proud to be 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 GrandLucy BarkerJim 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 can be enjoyed on the stunning coastal walk between Bondi and Tamarama, until the 4th November. 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.

If you are an artist looking for an experienced and passionate partner to facilitate your art projects, Axolotl, through our specialist AAP division can offer a range of services. We have experience designing and fabricating in an extensive range of construction materials as well as offer a range of unique, proprietary surfaces. To get in contact email art@axolotl.com.au or phone 02 9666 1207.

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
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
Materials: Mild steel, paint
Contemplation of unfolding and unpredictable swerves of life's complexities.


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.
