IN A GALAXY
FAR FAR AWAY
ON THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE
A CLUSTER OF NEW BORN STARS
HAS MADE AN APPEARANCE.
Curdnatta’s Entry for the ARID SCULPTURAL EVENT. “NEWBORN STARS”.
There are two parallel stories here. The concept of "Life on the Edge” of the universe where new stars are forming, in shapes and forms that we can only imagine, apart from the stunning images from the HUBBLE SPACE CRAFT.
The “New Born Stars” that have emerged in the Curdnatta Art Group, following our move to new premises in 2015. With an expanded membership there is a new group of artists who are contributing to the ideas and combined effort of this year’s entry in the Arid Sculptural Event.
The key material being the circular pottery batts that were left over from the sale of items at the old gallery.
Each participating artist decorated a batt to create a new star for our galaxy.
We procured a metal frame and attached a grid to create a box in which the stars hang.
The final feat of getting the structure to the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden was achieved... phew!! We hope it creates some DELIGHT!..
