Waste Art Sculpture prize winners announced

Scone’s Dale Fitz-Gerald was thrilled to be named winner of Singleton Council’s Waste Art Sculpture Prize on Friday night.

WINNER: Singleton Mayor John Martin and Councillor Val Scott with Waste Art Sculpture Prize Winner Dale Fitz-Gerald.

Dale’s artwork, The Tree of Life – a 2016 Representation, was described as ‘magic’ by the judges and was popular among the artists and guests in attendance at the presentation at Singleton Waste Facility.

The sculpture’s base was a plough disc with more than 500 bronze and silver keys used to create the leaves of the ‘tree’ with the trunk made from an old wine bottle welded with reinforcement steel recovered from building trash.

Dale says the canopy of the tree, in its confused state, was an expression of the turmoil that the world is in, least of all the turmoil of our natural world as it tries to cope with the pressures of mans’ pollution.

“Man, finally, is making an effort to care better for Mother Earth and this almost failing Tree of Life can be seen to be regenerating with new, strong and beautiful roots, searching downwards to nurturing soil to promote and sustain yet another cycle of life,” she says.

Singleton’s Ron Sampson won second and third place with Vent Fish, made from a sewer duct, and Insect Family, sculptured from knives, forks and spoons.

Hope Hardy won the adult artwork category with Utilzation and Fishy News, created by Jill Patterson, won second prize.

Young and very talented Brooke Smith won the youth sculpture prize with her ‘Pop’s Rusty Bits and Pieces’, a sheep created with paper Mache and embedded with nuts, bolts and many other items she gathered from her grandfather’s shed.

Colleen Gale Childrens Services won the youth art category with their Rainbow Window created by objects collected from the homes of the children in care.

Rainbow Childcare Services with their ‘Together We Make It Happen’, a charismatic green frog, won youth art second place.

The frog was a culmination of an educational discussion the children had about the importance of a healthy environment for the survival of frogs.

Congratulations to all winners and applicants for their creativity and hard work.​
