This preparatory work is a study on #paper that led to the permanent #urban#installation ‘The Travelers’. The watercolor depicts the large #sculpturesthat cross the Yarra River every morning, noon and evening.
Their movement recalls the #memories of #migrants who used to traverse the bridge coming from the port of Melbourne, Australia for more than a century.

The overlaps of the #ArchaicProcession’s #elements represented in these #drawings are part of an exploration of forms and shapes that preceded the creation of ‘The Travelers’, a permanent large scale #installation on Sandridge Bridge, Melbourne, Australia. This #publicartproject celebrates immigration and multiculturalism.
The works on paper have never been published or exhibited before.
