Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures
Brighton Jetty Classic Sculpture Competition 2014
Every year the Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club holds a major fund raiser called the Brighton Jetty Classic.
It is an open water swim in which over 1200 competitors take part.
Being such a large community event they also organise a sculpture competition as part of the entertainment.
The sculptural entries are both national and local entries and each year the bar is raised with the quality of entries.. the number of entries has also significantly increased
The whale is perhaps my favourite as it incorporates pattern and involves the surrounding to give visual impact.
I am also taken with this spherical form.. the bowl shape appears to be expelling smoke with the clouds in the background.
A trio of free flowing forms somewhat like seaweed
Meet Gene of Gen Simons fame... named after its very large tongue....hence my tongue poking out in the photo below. The artist Chris is standing with us . He was installing his giraffe when we went for out morning walk and coffee.
Something that looks like the Tardis??Complete with its own light show
Nautilus.. this is my sisters favouriite
Marfish..something from Monty Python?
Floating on a breeze...its actually a weather vein
A social comment on our fishing practices... "Gambling with our fish stock"
The Junior winner of the competition... Catch of the day - complete with pet dog.
that's only half of them...but you can get too much of a good thing!
Thanks for taking a walk with me along Brighton Beach SA
