Greer Taylor - vortex - Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition and Awards 2010
galleries :: | |

The Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition and Awards is an annual sculpture exhibition installed in the elegant grounds of the Yering Station Winery.

Statement:

Settled on the grassy lawns of Yering Station as if from another plane, vortex acts like a funnel to another frame of mind, a new dimension of time and space – posing a question of perspective and courage. 150 sets of red threads define a transparent vortex, listening or broadcasting…

This was the first large threaded work I made and I discovered how multiple soft threads could bend steel! The curves that resulted added to the work in a way I could not have expected.

The Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition and Awards 2010 exhibition dates were 22  November- 5 December 2010
