Description/Project: Sunshine Coast Council Public Art Program

This iconic work is one of a series of bronze art works celebrating the coastal and beach life of Marcoola - by linking the aquatic with the urban. Portal complements other interactive works scattered throughout the pedestrian strip and Village Green, collectively referencing the near-by beach, it's rock pools and their micro-worlds. Fabricated in bronze, the accompanying clustering sphere/hybrid forms feature intricately carved patterns inspired by marine life and the ocean. Portal acts as a signature marker/ tourist photo opportunity and climbing delight for children.
