A large scale artwork, the result of 2 years carving stone, has recently been completed by sculptor Mark Fabbro. The work is a towering 3 meter high 'dove of peace' entwined in a symphony of curves and has been dubbed to become the 'peace icon of the new millennium' by international art critics.
Mark is seeking an opportunity to exhibit the monumental work at art galleries in Washington DC, New York City and other United States locations.
Through the global media people are constantly presented with graphic images of people, and cultures bearing the ravages of conflict and war.
Australia is involved in the war on terrorism to bring global peace. Mark wants to see art which reflects the ideal of peace, held dear by many Australians, inspire and fortify the outcome sought by the anti-terrorism alliance. In this way some sort of balance can be restored.
When politics and war fail to maintain peace, it is up to the people to protect the collective psyche from the traumas such horrific events so vividly portrayed give rise to. This is assisted by peace oriented art which helps ameliorate seemingly senseless acts of war and suffering. It is the responsibility of Corporate sponsors to respond to monumental artistic interpretation of such events Mark said.
Fabbro is taking the sculpture on a ‘peace mission’ in November 2001 exhibiting it in public places throughout Sydney including Martin Place, the Harbour Foreshore and Bondi Beach. It maybe viewed Saturday November 10th and 11th at Circular Quay.
