Win on the wind
Nelson-born sculptor Phil Price, 44, has won the Allens Arthur Robinson People’s Choice Prize of AU$5000 for his sculpture “Morpheus”, which was part of the 18-day exhibition “Sculpture by the Sea” in Bondi. Price is recognized as one of the finest wind-activated kinetic sculptors in the Southern Hemisphere, and his work Morpheus has drawn much attention. Showing its international appeal, Morpheus was also the winner of the Kids’ Choice Award at the inaugural Sculpture by the Sea, Aarhus ó Denmark held in June earlier this year. “It’s a great pleasure to be back in Sculpture by the Sea after 4 years away, and to be welcomed back with the People’s Choice Award is fantastic,” said Price.
