Something really inspired me about this shot from South of The River Russell.
Russell says,this figure has been sitting in this guy’s yard, just up the street from me, for years, along with the unfinished boat – is it good enough for the Mundaring Sculpture Park?
I had in mind some quite sarcastic comments for this, but no. Somehow this is what’s good about Perth as well as what’s bad. Here you don’t just dream of building a boat or fashioning a sculpture of Pan, you have a crack. What the f*ck – Have a go at both at the same time. I’d like to think that I had the triumph of will to wander out the back of TWOP headquarters with a tinny of Swan premium, start laying a keel and at the same time chisel out a pagan deity. Big respect. Although I am putting this in worst art, I am also putting it in not worst. Bad boat, bad Pan. I kinda like you both. This IS what Perth is about. Thanks Russell.
