 (above) “Dividing of the waters” – Jesse Graham, Steel, Timber - Public Tree sculpture- Nimmitabel- N.S.W. Australia - 2009.

 

This work was commission by the town of Nimmitabel in the Snowy mountains region of N.S.W, Australia.

The title “Dividing of the waters” is the aboriginal meaning of the word Nimmitabel and references the fact that the region is the starting point of two of New South Wales’s major river systems.

“Wrath of the Black Diamond” – Jesse Graham, 2009. Public sculpture Jindabyne, Australia. Steel .Size (m): (h) 2, (w) 0.6, (l) 2.

 Jindabyne is a town in the Snowy Mountains region of N.S.W. in Australia. I was one of several artists selected to design a seat to be permanently installed along the Jindabyne Lake walk. With full Artistic Licence in my favour I chose to make an Easter Island-style head for the basic shape. Considering the nearby ski-fields I chose the tongue to represent a snowboard and the hair to represent skis.

The title refers to the difficulty of aparticular type of ski run…..a double black diamond being the most difficult. My wife suggested “Icy-pole” would have been a better name but it was too late. Damn! (“Icy Pole” referring to getting your tongue stuck to a frozen object.)

Right - This tree sculpture is a memorial piece that was privately commisioned.Bombala High School in N.S.W. Australia was chosen as an appropriate position for the work.

 

Coordination with the Bombala Principal allowed school friends of the deceased to participate with the installation of the tree to the left (4m High). This work is situated in the centre of the schools grounds.
