The Windswept Light
Sustainability meets functional art
The Windswept light was created for The Christchurch Art Gallery Foundation.
The Windswept light sculpture is inspired by our observations of windswept trees along the hilltop walking tracks of the Banks Peninsula. The base is crafted from Timaru bluestone, acknowledging the volcanic history of our land. The sculpted wooden form is created from an ancient Rimu tree rescued from the water of Milford Sound. Together, they are our contemporary visualisation of nature’s force on the Banks Peninsula through functional art.
The first Windswept light was donated to the Christchurch Art Gallery Foundation to raise funds for a new public work by British artist Bridget Riley.
