Yay or nay?

It’s pretty standard now to have seemingly random and meaningless sculptures in city centres. I have stated before that I am not really a fan of these pieces of art, there may in fact be a meaning behind them but if I am able to recreate it, I’m just not that intrigued by it. 

Saying that, I do like how the skyline is bordered by this sculpture, located near the State Library of Queensland here in Brisbane.

What do you think of these, are you a lover or a hater? I’d love to know your thoughts and opinions.

    • I can see where you’re coming from, it’s better than no art I guess! However that’s why I like street art, as I find it more colourful and often quite impressive.


    • I like a puzzle, as long as it can be solved! If art has a good meaning, I appreciate it. And yes, it’s fascinating how we interact with art such as this one, I agree 🙂

    • Thanks for your opinion on it, I do love sculptures and here in Australia there was a great event called ‘Sculptures by the sea’ and lots of sculptures were dotted along the Sydney shoreline for a period of time. That sculpture garden sounds fascinating!

  1. My uni is acquired two cannons from a 19th century war and they stand as art in a grass park on campus. They do look cool (and have many kids eyeing them during midterms), and they also weirdly fit in. War cannons on a campus front lawn? It’s nothing unusual!
    What would you think of it?

      • They are something interesting to look at besides the buildings, vehicles, people, and billboards that usually permeates city scapes. Some sculptures will speak to me in someway. However, I must admit I have run across a few that had me wondering what the artist was trying to convey.
