I can’t look at this Claremont artwork without getting itchy nurries. Why is Claremont commissioning 3D C&B? Why would they do that? Why?  By Pete F.

    I think we can safely say that is time for compulsory Council public art levies on developers to go the way of the dodo. Just impose a vibrancy tax and be done with it.

      From teh POST in May last year:
      A breath of fantasy and the cycle of life are coming to Claremont.
      The sculptures are on temporary show at Claremont council’s office before being installed in Avion Way.
      Ron Gomboc’s Cycle of Life – Living is 2.7m-high and made of marine-grade brushed aluminium.
      Japanese artist Akiho Tata’s A Breath of Fantasia is made of polished and etched granite with bright yellow, blue and red paint.
      Both creations were on show at this year’s Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe.
      The council bought them for $97,000 and they will be installed across the highway in Avion Way at a date to be confirmed.
      Late last year the council decided to change Avion Way to one-way. Part of the deal means property owner John Bond pays $50,000 for public art and 20% of the roadworks cost.
      “The start date for Avion Way is dependent upon completion of Stirling Road and St Quentin Avenue works, to ensure minimal disruption where possible,” a council spokeswoman said.
      “The council-approved plan for the Stirling Road and St Quentin Avenue works is now with Main Roads WA.
      “Once approved by MRWA they will commence, together with Stirling Highway and Stirling Road works.”

    Did things go pear shaped before or after this at Claremont council ?

    People must not be getting enough quality sex in Perth — or maybe Claremont

    Maybe there is something to be said for dying one s scrotal pubes ( after they have turned white , of course ) in primary colours .
