This year will see Christian sculpt a piece entitled “Dinner” inspired the “One Tonne Challenge” led by Creative Director, Josie Jones, 2015 winner of the “Keep Australia Beautiful Gift fund” for her efforts towards the environment with her I’m really a mermaid campaign by the documentation and collection of rubbish from the Mornignton Peninsula foreshore.
Visualize her quest to keep Port Phillip bay clean, respecting all marine life and preserving a unique coastal environment, when you see Christian turn what Josie collects, into an inspiring piece of art. Christian Gundesen creates “Expressions of the ocean” as he appears as the Featured Sculptor Dromana Art Show 2015. See Christian turn rubbish into a living expression of the ocean, that will have you standing in awe.
The Dromana Art Show in it’s 41st year of vibrant collaboration between Dromana Primary School and Dromana Rotary Club. It is bigger and more exciting than ever, showcasing contemporary and traditional works across a range of mediums. This year sees the ever talented Christian Gundesen as the featured sculptor. Christian will be exhibiting 6 unique pieces created especially for this show and we are certain, it’s not to be missed.
Using his traditional cuttlebone carvings, this exhibition sees Christian move into other mediums, such as carving the lead of a pencil, turning rubbish into a living expression of the ocean and cuttlebone pieces that will have you standing in awe.
Be inspired by other artists, such as the works of David Day, recently on ABC Open – a fantastic resource for the positive effects of recycling and turning rubbish into art.
Join us for the 41st annual Dromana Art Show and come see what Dinner looks like!
Melbourne Cup Weekend see the opening night, Friday October 30th 7pm – LATE
