Description

Public Sculpture by Vlasé Nikoleski.

Artist interpretation:
A cone and a column communicate the power of fast flowing water. Water pressure appears to rise from the cone to fill the column which contorts into a dynamic sculpture.

Located Dandenong Road East, Frankston. 

Dimensions: 280h x 494w x 120d cm

Material: Stainless steel column and concrete

About the Artist:
Vlasé Nikoleski's work is informed directly or indirectly by the Australian landscape. "This vast, rugged landscape with its expansive horizons, harsh sunlight, blindingly bright skies and the way humankind has reshaped it are the stimulants for my art making. My sculpture explores the interrelationship between the natural and human constructed worlds. I take familiar elements and recombine them into sculptures that are evocative of changing landscapes."

Over the years Vlasé has utilised conventional materials such as many types of metal, stone and wood, concrete, soil, bricks and water, separately or in combination with less orthodox materials including steam, smoke, a live beehive, living plants, woven cane, formed leather and even recorded sounds. Each autonomous sculpture is complete and unique and part of Vlasé Nikoleski's continuing search for visual expression of the Australian landscape. 

Vlasé frequently works with stainless steel and bronze manipulated into any shape or form by casting, fabricating, modelling or forging. These metals allow Vlasé to produce the widest range of textures and colours while giving Vlasé strong and robust structures. Stainless steel and bronze are very compatible metals and individually or together, are very resistant to undesirable corrosion. This has enabled Vlasé to incorporate water, steam, smoke and even fish into durable site specific sculptures.
