Canterbury’s ‘Clippings’ group were inspired by
These abstract designs were created after a study period on the renowned Australian sculptor Augustine Dall’ava.
There is a strain of perfectionism in Dall’ava’s nature that has no sympathy for the ‘rough and the ready’. It is a commitment to precision and detail. He is conscious of the material and how to make it work, some things in opposition and sometimes in harmony, with colour being a primary coordinating unifying element.
Collections of his work can be seen at McClelland Sculpture Park, Victoria, Melbourne International Airport, the Queens Plaza in Brisbane and throughout Australia and the world.
