Taking pride of place, SHARE 2020 is a 5.5-metre-tall cast bronze creature that welcomes all into the sculpture park. The creature, clutching a small blue friend (it’s BFF), is easily seen as you approach the iconic Queensland bottle tree at the main entrance.
KAWS, AKA Brian Donnelly, was commissioned by Mrs Pauline Gandel prior to the COVID-19 pandemic with the project having been in the making for some 14 months. In late 2019, the NGV featured an exhibition of more than 100 pieces of Kaw’s works.
As you enter the building, you are also welcomed by SHRIVE II. A Matrix of cast iron blocks. Through this work, Anthony Gormley recalls both architectural elements and a human body with a distinct attitude.
Our General Manager, Roger Lancia, says: “The reveal of these latest two artworks comes as we again open our doors to the public. We look forward to sharing these incredible new pieces, our wine, food and of course, hospitality, which is always at the heart of what we do at Pt. Leo Estate.”
Both artworks couldn’t have been released at a better time as Regional Victoria opens and welcomes back locals and visitors
