Sculpture in the Gardens, Manurewa

I had the chance to visit Auckland Botanic Gardens earlier this week for a photo shoot and was very fortunate to see the Sculpture in the Gardens. (running til 16 February 2014)

My colleague suddenly became a tour guide (since she has been there before) and walked me to fantastic sculptures around the gardens. I could feel all the hard work behind each sculpture as I am an artist myself too. The huge scale of each artwork brings you closer to the subject and makes you feel touched and involved. My favourite was The White Horse by Ben Foster. Each aluminium sides cast light differently and were changing by sunlight and movement of the viewer.
