Donald Campbell Sculpture

ATTRACTION (24hr)

(08) 9863 4012

Absolon St, Dumbleyung WA 6350, Australia

Donald Campbell Sculpture unveiled by Gina Campbell 17 January 2017, commissioned by Robert McDougall. He raised the money by collecting and selling yabbies, along with donations from some wonderful people.

Cabinet funded by community funds.
This extraordinary sculpture was created by, Ivan Lovatt, using galvanised chicken wire, a medium that lends itself to sensitivity and delicacy. By layering, twisting, shaping and pinning this very ordinary medium, Ivan creates both abstract and realistic representations. The wire, with its hexagonal shapes can provide a good deal of structural integrity, and with layering and using different gauges of wire it is possible to create very large sculptures.
