‘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.”
