Neil Dawson Reflects on His Career and Public Sculpture

Noted New Zealand sculptor Neil Dawson has been a force in contemporary sculpture for over 30 years. Most well-known for his large-scale public sculptures, Dawson often plays with illusion in his whimsical pieces. By focusing on the use of lines and positive and negative space, his sculptures have made an indelible mark internationally. Whether suspending light and airy globes above public squares or using a single line to create a dramatic silhouette, Dawson’s site-specific works are closely tied to their surrounding environment. “His sculptures flout convention in their lightness of feel, their transparency and their escape from the conventions of earthbound pedestal-based display,” writes Dr. Michael Dunn, Professor Emeritus at the University of Auckland, in his book New Zealand Sculpture: A History. Though Dawson has focused less on public sculpture lately, his presence is clearly felt in the work he’s left behind across New Zealand. From the inverted cone of The Chalice in Christchurch to the iconic Horizons at the Gibbs Farm sculpture park in Auckland, there is no denying the impact of his work. Horizons, in particular, is a tour de force where perception, illusion, and si...

Introducing: The Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical In New Colors (Live Pics & Pricing)

Breaking News The Henry Graves Jr. Patek Philippe Minute Repeater Is Up For Sale Again At Christie’s Geneva Any new iteration of the Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical has big shoes – or rather, big combat boots – to fill. What you’re looking at is the progeny of a bona fide piece of American history.  This update to the classic Khaki feels like it’s hit the target. At 38mm it’s modern and wearable, while still maintaining that sort of old-school cool that’s been in American military watch DNA since the ’40s, and it comes with new green and white dials, along with a new case finish called  Earth PVD.  When it comes to American military watches, all roads lead to an old set of government specifications put out by the Army Ordnance Department to major watchmakers in the 1940s: a robust hackable movement, tough crystal, center sweeping seconds, and a one-piece strap. In short, it was the perfect recipe for a watch that could take a bit of roughing up; it left out anything it didn’t need in order to do one thing well, and that one thing was simply telling the time.  Hamilton answered the government’s call and produced watches for Allied forces durin...

WNCL: WA set to unveil new-look squad in double-header

Western Australia women could name up to five debutants for its opening game of the Women’s National Cricket League after releasing its 14-player squad for this weekend’s double-header in Brisbane. Young guns Molly Healy, Sheldyn Cooper and Meg Thompson have travelled with the team for games against Queensland and Tasmania, with the trio coming through the WA Female Cricket Pathway.

14-year-old Denver boy was shot and killed over a pair of shoes, family says

DENVER — Treaujalaune Lornes was like many 14-year-old boys. He loved basketball, his family and his friends. Family members say one of those friends is accused of killing him, apparently over a pair of shoes. Lornes’ sister, Tyquajanna, told Denver7 that neither she, her son, nor anyone else in the family got to say goodbye to her little brother. “He wanted to have so much money (that) he could take care of everybody, his mom, all his brothers and me, and his little sister,” she said. That dream was cut short when the 14-year-old was gunned down in a house on South Monaco Parkway, near Cook Park, Wednesday evening. “My brother got shot on the stairs in the house, and now they’re saying that it’s not over a gun, it was over a pair of shoes! It was over a pair of shoes!” she cried. Lornes said her brother and some friends were at a car wash near Washington High School, when they began arguing over a pair of Jordans. Tyquajana said the juvenile suspect, who police arrested Friday morning, originally said it was someone else who fired the shot. “The boy that sat there with him and watched him die, and watched him go, when he sh...
