This year’s show was as fabulous as usual, with almost 200 sculptures of all shapes , sizes and mediums. These 3 were my absolute favorites. I haven’t seen Greg Yee’s sculptural work before but this ceramic wood pile is beautiful and poetic.  Tatyanna Meharry’s installation  of 574 ceramic vessels representing every man that left their home in Banks Peninsula to fight in the 1st world war, installed in front of the cottage, the group jostling to make it to the door. And finally Kim Hennessey’s glass house that speaks of fragility and security. These works all placed in the domestic realm, they quietly remind us of loss and the intangible value of home. To see more of these artists work ….. http://www.gregyee.co.nz, http://www.thebusyfinch.co.nz and kimhennessy.com
