Catalogue number: 3

Bronze (Edition of 8, cast in 2018)

19.60 x 32.50 x 5.40

Provenance: The Estate of the Artist

Literature & references: Norma Redpath, Ideas and Images: Theatres of the Mind, unpublished manuscript, 1985, pp. 6, 78-9; ‘Public’s Art’, Our Bank: State Bank of Victoria, October 1985, illustrated p. 4; Michael Hedger, Public Sculpture in Australia, Roseville East, NSW: Craftsman House, 1995, p. 96, full page illustration p. 97; Victoria Gurvich, ‘Work of the week: Landscape Caryatid [sic], 1980-85’, The Age, 13 December 2003, review p. 7; Ken Wach, ‘Australian sculptor who was enamoured with Italy’, The Age, 23 January 2013, colour illustration p. 14.

Note: This is the maquette for the 5-metre-high and 8-metre-wide public work that was commissioned by architects Egglelston, Macdonald and Secomb for the foyer of the State Bank Centre, on the corner of Bourke and Elizabeth Streets, Melbourne. The title translates approximately as ‘Carrying the Landscape’, and references the classical device of the caryatide, or column capital that support a counterbalanced weight. In this case, that weight is the landscape itself. The large-scale work was cast at the Veronese Foundry in Milan and transported in pieces to Melbourne, where it was assembled and installed in September 1985. In 2003 the building was refurbished and the final sculpture donated to the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park in Langwarrin. The present maquette has been cast posthumously from the original wax.
