The natural and man-made landscape of Canberra - an inhabited work of art
Aesthetically, the sculpture adopts a literal form of a hand holding a paintbrush. Interplaying with the real life scenery behind it, the sculpture provides a surreal juxtaposition as the paintbrush alludes to having painted the trees and ever-changing sky behind it (a continually changing 'painting').
In so doing, the piece celebrates and emphasises the astounding natural beauty around it as being the true artwork to consider. Indeed, the artwork suddenly becomes far bigger than the sum of its parts - extending as far as the eye can see…the Landscape - that is Canberra.
