De Mestre Place, Warriors

Warriors by Jan van der Ploeg is displayed on a large billboard on the northern wall of De Mestre Place, off George Street. Maybe not one of the most exciting artworks shown in 'Are You Looking At Me? Laneway Art' during the Art and About Sydney festival, but it did make the concrete wall look a lot more interesting than usual. The graphic black and white patterns also worked well with the all the lines reflected in the windows above.

  4. Oooh, makes my eyes go funny and my head swim a little. I guess it's supposed to do that. Must be hard for some people to walk beside it, or maybe the effect isn't there if you're too close.
    Very interesting shot.

  8. Still so many "warriors" left in this world, a fact that should indeed make difficult the sense of sight, life as a whole. A great piece of art in my opinion. Please have a good weekend.

  9. Kay, maybe the distance and the angle don't give you the full appreciation of this artwork. I found that it looked so different from every angle that you viewed it from.

  10. I love it, if for no other reason than it is so different and makes me keep looking to try and figure out what I'm seeing each time I look at it! Not sure that makes any sense at all -- I frequently have that problem! Enjoy your weekend, Jim!
