Today’s Sculpture — Only In The World


Made from reinforced plaster and timber, Ramon Robertson’s strange figures are one of the stars of this year’s NZ Sculpture OnShore exhibition currently being held at Fort Takapuna overlooking the Hauraki Gulf on the North Shore of Auckland. Robertson is regular exhibitor at the biennial event, this year celebrating its 10th anniversary. I’ve been to each event since 2006 and Roberston’s figures always catch my eye. This year they are bigger than usual, and you can’t miss them. His work deals with “aspects of architecture and urbanisation . . . the effect of our visual perception of objects and environment”.
