Vanishing... by Christine Oakley

Currently unavailable for purchase

“Like a thought brushing up against a sigh
Floating away
Vanishing like a cyan Sunday,
Disappear, disappear,
Vanish, vanish, into the air,
Slowly disappear,
Never really here…”
~ Vanishing, A Perfect Circle

    I presume that this is the same sculpture as before.. but you can see more of how it’s blending with nature… this is a fantastic piece… you photography, and the artist who sculpted this wonderful piece. barb

  • Hi Barb – thanks so much for the comment. This is actually a different piece – different angles and more of a "vanishing: than an “emerging”…he really was an incredible artist and Parks Victoria has done such a good job with conserving this “sanctuary”….
