A fish called ‘George’ wins Patritti Brighton Jetty Sculptures’ Outdoor Award
A 2m high fish called ‘George’, named after its creator’s ‘prickly’ grandfather, is this year’s Outdoor Winner at the 2019 Patritti Brighton Jetty Sculptures.
Sculptor James Hamilton said he lovingly named the steel and bronze lion fish after his grandfather, whom he described as ‘an interesting and at times prickly old guy’.
His Excellency, the Governor of South Australia, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, officially opened the 12th annual exhibition last night, at which the winners were announced. Winning sculptures were chosen for design, originality and degree of difficulty to create.
Congratulations to James and all the winners.
