‘Solitude’ unveiled in Double Bay

Despite the rain, the spirits were buoyant in Guilfoyle Park, Double Bay when Woollahra launched its Public Art trust with the unveiling of Jenny Green’s sculpture ‘Solitude’.

Speaking at the launch were Deborah Thomas (Woollahra Councillor and chair of the Trust), David Gonski (Company director, Chancellor of UNSW & Trustee of the Public Art Trust), Toni Zeltzert (Mayor of Woollahra)  and Jenny Green.

Like much of her work, ‘Solitude’ has its origins in the figure.  “My concept here was to reflect on inner peace and tranquility….  freedom from distraction … and a time for oneself”, Jenny said. “Now standing tall here amongst the trees, I hope the work encourages visitors to Guilfoyle  park to take a moment to contemplate and to dream.”

I’m excited to announce that ‘Solitude’ is now installed in Guilfoyle Park at  Double  Bay.

Weighing nearly 200kg and 2.5m tall, I needed a crane and several helpers to install the work.

The sculpture is now permanently in the park as part of the Woollahra Public Art Trust.

‘Go Figure’ 12 Sept – 3 October, 2013

Please join Jenny at the opening of  ‘Go Figure’ on Thursday 12 September, 6-8pm at traffic jam galleries, 41 Military Rd, Neutral Bay.

The exhibition continues to 3 October, 2013

In ‘Go Figure’, Jenny explores figures, flora and fantasy using steel, bronze and resin.  Welcome to a world where nymphs and naiads wander; a time where the earth begins to bloom.  Jenny says “I collect discarded steel, transform it, give it new life…. in much the way that plants can appear seemingly by magic on a bare rock”.

Although her work is industrial, it is light and breezy.  Her intent to capture a moment, a movement, a feeling is reflected in the tension between space and material.

Check out ‘Solitude’, 2.5metres tall and weighing 200kg, being transported to the gallery for the show http://vimeo.com/73913587
