‘Sculpture by the Sea’ in Bondi Beach, Sydney is the world’s largest free to the public sculpture exhibition. There were about 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world. This particular sculpture by Lucy Barker caught my eye. I found myself drawn by its immediacy as the artist worked with what was present – the rock itself. The holes in the rock were a product of centuries of erosion, which, given my comparatively few years on this planet, gave me a sense of awe. I found the mesh fabric within created a sense of organic union between the artist and the natural world, proposing a longstanding marriage between ourselves and the natural elements from which we draw our creative energy. In addition to the art piece itself, I have always been drawn to the ocean. It always seems as if the rhythm of the undulating waves reflects my own pulse back onto me and brings out a most profound sense of calm into my soul. Snapping this photo, I felt a deep reverence for this scene caught square in the middle between the ocean and this artist’s experience of the world, reflecting my own.
