Canine sculpture sends message
Art Sydney Sculpture
Gillie and Marc will be creating a uniquely designed piece, specifically for Art Sydney 2010, entitled “He thought this was going to be totally out of character but there’s a first time for everything”. The 3m high sculpture will be an addition to their current catalogue of work “Returning to the Animal Within.”
‘We, the contemporary artist pull apart the world, so it can be put back together as something different.’ Gillie and Marc Schattner
Their art uses a colourful and exuberant meshing of Pop Art and figurative expressionism to explore themes of contentment and happiness. Their recent dog series was inspired by research that showed that if you want to live a happy life, the single most important thing you can do is get a dog.
