Unfortunately for Perth, former Lord Mayor Peter Natrass was incredibly keen on the ultra banal bronzecasters the Smiths. Now Nattrass was as famous for his lack of artistic taste as he was for not having a reflection, and drinking blood from the necks of slumbering ratepayers. The result is that we seem to have literally hundreds of pieces from this truly awful pair. The latest, and hopefully last work from these artistic criminals is a very bad sundial next to the Belltower. Gawd.
There’s a massive Smiths infestation down near the casino. Here’s one of the pieces. Smiths please stop tormenting us with this bland shittiness. Go to adelaide.
