New Public Art Commission at Blue Mountains Cultural Centre

KOICHI ISHINO Wind, Stone - Earth and Sky 2018, stainless steel and granite, 340 x 250 cm
Through a generous donation from the late William Scrymgeour Tatlow, the Cultural Centre has achieved a long awaited goal of commissioning a significant, site specific sculpture for the central courtyard.

A call for submissions was undertaken in February of 2017, resulting in 38 applications being received from across Australia. Renowned sculptor Koichi Ishino was selected to complete his proposed work, titled Wind, Stone - Earth and Sky.

The sculpture is constructed from stainless steel and black granite in Ishino's trademark process of bonding the two materials with original inlay techniques. These techniques result in surfaces that morph from stone to steel across perfectly flat planes in a seemingly impossible junction. The mirrored stainless steel reflects the ever changing skyscape and contrasts with the solidity of the black granite, grounding the sculpture to the earth. Wind, Stone - Earth and Sky has been designed to both reflect the changing elements of the Blue Mountains and reference the relationship between the mountains and the sky. 

Wind, Stone - Earth and Sky is the 6th public art commission by the Cultural Centre and is on public display in the central courtyard.
