Flesh Out of Water** EVENT CANCELLED

Date: 20 March 2020
Time: 3:00pm
Location: SymbioticA
Speaker: Tony Jones

In this informal artist's talk, Tony Jones will take us through some of his prominent public sculptures including 'Eliza' (the bronze diver in Crawley Bay) the CY O’Connor Horse & Rider in North Coogee and Standing Figure in East Perth. Through his experience as a Western Australian artist Jones will discuss initiatives such as Praxis, PICA & AGWA through to teaching and the work of Western Australian artist Brian McKay and theoretician Donald Brook.

Tony Jones is a sculptor/artist/teacher working in Western Australia for some 50+ years whose public artworks can be found in the Perth metropolitan area and the regions. The sculptures often but not exclusively reflect a life lived close to and on the Indian Ocean and the Swan River.
