The latest sculpture to be unveiled along the Sculpture Down the Lachlan trail uses interlinking geometric shapes to represent the patterns formed in nature, and the interconnection that exists between them.
Within – Without (Of Land and Spirit) by Greg Johns, located on Marsden Road within the Lachlan Shire, speaks of nature’s micro–macro links and the importance of respecting and protecting them.
“When links are broken, such as the extinction of particular flora or fauna, the whole system becomes vulnerable and can ultimately collapse,” sculptor, Greg Johns said.
In collaboration with boilermaker Darryl McFarlane of Demill Engineering, Greg constructed the three-tonne geometric piece using hundreds of solid 25mm mild steel units, each cut from solid steel plate. The five-metre-high pod, formed from open hexagonal units, offers vastly different patterns when viewed from different angles.
