Public Art

I try to appreciate public art works. They don't always hit the mark, and sometimes that is just a matter of taste, but someone has gone to the time and expense of commissioning a work and an artist has produced something to enrich our lives. A little respect is called for, even if the end result doesn't work for everyone.

At my place of work there are a many artworks including some installations by the great local artist Howard Taylor.

I'm not sure this is one that really works for me, but it has a certain presence and has stood the test of time!



If you want to learn more about the artist try this website from the WA Art Gallery. It also links to a self portrait this is one of my favourite works in the gallery.
