Barbie Dolls Are Now Art.
Sculptures by the Sea has been gracing our shoreline for nearly a decade and every year, something incredible and intriguing appears along Cottesloe Beach. This year however, is a little more controversial with Norton Flavel brining back memories with a giant goon bag that I am sure has featured in every Aussies' teenage years. As with all art, there is room for debate and conversation. Personally I thought Flavel's work was worth a few giggles and made me think that I have been 'cultured' for years!
I was hoping to take some snaps of the sculptures that showed their detail and character, however the crowds of people had already beat me to the beach. At first I was worried the photos wouldn't be much good through the hoards of people, but on reflection I've decided that in fact they are a perfect example of what the sculptures have been created to do; bring people together to enjoy, admire and appreciate. A personal favourite of mine, is the little girl who was mimicking the ballerina.
Sculptures by the sea will be around until March 24th.
