The annual Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize has been awarded to Melbourne-based artist, Robert Owen for his painted, stainless steel work Symmetria #37. The work is the artist’s continued investigation into geometry, proportion and visual poetry. Owen is represented by Arc One Gallery in Melbourne.
The judges commented on the work: "Owen's sculpture reveals a complex and sophisticated use of line and shadow. A senior Australian artist, with significant works on a monumental scale across Sydney, his winning submission demonstrates.”
The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize exhibition is on display at the Woollahra Council Chambers in Double Bay, Sydney, from Saturday 10 to Sunday 25 October 2015.
