Burst – a landmark sculpture that forms a symbiotic and axial relationship with the exercise mandala and the green world of Wilga Park and Shrimptons creek beyond.
A physical and theoretical counterpoint between the active and passive synergies of Wilga Park.
Standing 4 metres tall the eruptive form acts as a physical and theoretical counterpoint between the active and passive synergies of Wilga Park.
Located in Wilga Park, the space was identified by ARTSCAPE as appropriate for public art in the Macquarie Park Corridor Public Art Master Plan.
The sculpture aligns with Shrimptons Creek, an ecological gem - and the green spine of Macquarie Park. The curious form references flora and fauna and an ability to regenerate through bursts of growth.
The sculpture conversely aligns with Flower, Sun, Moon, Head (exercise mandala) thereby referencing a burst of movement and energy synonymous with yoga and fitness.
The artwork is complementary to the radial landscape scheme bringing a burst of colour and joy to park users.
