Sculpture in the Vineyards is an annual event taking place in the Wollombi are of NSW Hunter Valley, sculptures  are installed in multiples vineyards in the area. red line (transect) was exhibited during Sculpture in the Vineyards 2016, it was installed at Undercliff Winery.


red line (transect): A north-south transects reflects one of the few straight lines whose placement on the land is governed by natural forces – a line pulled between the 2 magnetic poles of our planet.

A red string line emerges from the earth to be lifted by 20 poles aligned north south across the land. The red transect, like a vein against the sky, a homage to the natural forces which govern this planet.

I would like to extend my gratitude to:

  • Deborah Redwood for her assistance in installing
  • Undercliff Winery for their support and interest

Sculpture in the Vineyards 2016 exhibition dates were: 29 October — 4 December 2016
