Focusing on the intricacies of art

The challenge this week, at Lens and Pens by Sally, is to take macro shots. With most of my time at the moment taken up with the 2014 NZ Sculpture OnShore exhibition at the moment, it won’t come as any surprise that my photos are of sculptures – or at least details from sculptures. These are all works in the Officers’ Mess Gallery, and were taken on my phone in the quieter moments since we installed the exhibition just over a week ago. I’ve edited all of them to a greater or less extent to focus in on some details.

    • Hi Joanne. Thank you. I will get around to posting more photos. The wire coils are old telephone wire. There is a large outdoor sculpture, and several smaller indoor pieces that I photographed. Cheers, Su.

    • Hi Janet. It is a dragon; made of old car parts and mechanical bits and pieces. I’ll post a pic of the whole work when I get a moment. Only three days left and we are hoping for good weather. The last few days have been very wet, very windy, and incredibly cold. Terrible for outdoor sculpture!
