Sculpture with real meaning

The Age Newspaper, 1978

Among the sculptors two distinct approaches are perceptible. Compare Adrian Mauriks big hinged boxes with their smooth planes and shapely cut outs - a sculpture as sleek as an object of Bauhaus design - with Sharon Williams' rusty metal spikes swaddled in bands of inhospitable iron, and Jane Saunders' gutsy piece of homemade machinery.

Mauriks, Perrins and Woods worked from blueprints to create stereoscopic visual rather than tactile effects. The other sculptors emphasise the materials and processes of welding, binding, wrapping and so on.
