Local glass artist Matthew Curtis has unveiled his sculpture, Field of Light, at Hindmarsh’s Iskia development in Campbell.
At 7 by 2.4 metres, the sculpture comprises around 2,000 glass lenses backlit with LED lighting, creating changes in the colour and mood of the piece.
“It is up to the viewer to “decide what the light through the glass reminds them of – a starry night, bubbles in champagne, or poppies in a field,” Curtis said of his work.
“I also wanted to honour the location of Iskia in Campbell. This is where the national office of the RSL is based and just moments from the War Memorial. This has influenced my design and I hope the field of lights created respectfully reflects this inspiration.”
Iskia is recently completed, and has begun to welcome its first residents to the mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, penthouses and residences on Constitution Avenue.
