Here are some opportunities to see some new works by Gillian Govan online
Association of Sculptors of Victoria
I had work ready to exhibit with 139 other sculptures at the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER AND GARDEN SHOW. Due to Covid 19 this was of course cancelled but for the exhibitors the Association of Sculptors has set up an online exhibition that will be launched on 1st June. To see my work go to www.sculptorsvictoria.asn.au
THE POWER OF ONE can be seen in an online exhibition above. This sculpture expresses our ability as individuals to care for our environment. I have made this piece with recycled materials. Plugs, cables and wires that would otherwise have gone to landfill. It was an exciting experiment and I will continue to recycle materials in my work. Another work to be exhibited in this online exhibition is JOI DE VIVRE, that simplly expresses the joys of life in movement and colour. This is a small bronze figure.
Finally, I present SO TIRED (a bronze piece on marble base - approx 100cms) It's an emotional variation of my “bracing the elements.” which metaphorically expresses the effort of coping with life’s hurdles. The title of this piece is multi-dimentional. Is the mother tired from carrying the child? Is the child tired from walking or has it just been a long day? Are they both tired and struggling with life? This overall depicts the love between mother and child. The love that will carry the little one through life and the absolute comfort and security the child feels as he rests his weary head.
These 3 works may be viewed in the BRONZE & MIXED MEDIA galleries of this website.
