Detail from a sculpture by Audrey Boyle “The knot not and the not now” at the “headland Sculpture on the Gulf” exhibition, Waiheke. A fun installation (its cryptic title notwithstanding), as viewers are invited to play with the ‘fence’, adding or removing knots, leading to ever new incarnations of the concept. Not sure what the (fabric covered) raw material was, but it had great tactile qualities.
The headland exhibition will end tomorrow, Sunday, February 15.
One of the works in the pavilion of the “headland Sculpture on the Gulf” exhibition. Jeff Thomson is best known for his corrugated iron sculptures, but his practice encompasses quite a bit more. This rooster, resplendent in red, is certainly an eye-catcher.
From the Headland Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition on Waiheke Island. An extra large coffee to go overlooks the waters of the Waitemata Harbour. In the distance top right one recognizes the silhouette of Rangitoto Island, and with a lot of imagination one can imagine the Sky Tower more or less in the centre.
Throw Away Fix is a sculpture by Brett Oakes.

Part of the enjoyment of art exhibitions is “people watching”. In the solemn setting of museums, this has to be practiced with due restraint. By contrast, open-air events can be much more in your face, camera at the ready.

At the end of our walk through the Headland Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition the clouds finally disappeared completely, and as we sat down at the Cable Bay Vineyards we enjoyed a briliant afternoon. The vineyard itself also hosted a small sculpture show, amongst them this glistening work by Gregor Kregar, entitled “Immersive Echo” (we have previously shown his flock of cornered sheep at the TSB Bank Wallace Art Centre).
