Arts and Craft (Post#1) : “Silence” By Adrian Mauriks
After I sailed along Yarra River in Docklands, within Victoria Harbour in Melbourne one of the public art display noticeable when I passed NewQuay Promenade is the art display with the title “Silence” which made by sculpture Adrian Mauriks. The art display become a playground for the kids strayed in the area. I as searched more information about the art public display, below is what I found.
Sculptor Adrian Mauriks has described this work as “a series of forms arousing to the mind, appealing to memory, reminding you of natural things – clouds, a tree, a forest – questioning and gesturing, and at the same time promoting sustainability in all things.” The work has a quiet presence, suggesting gentleness and an opposing view of the chaotic world outside.
For me public art display makes the place or the surrounding more alive because of a unique and genius craft that adds spices to unadorned spaces. Photos captured after my sailing adventure last March 2013.
