Sculpere November 2010

President's Message for November

Geoff Williams President
This edition of Sculpere is edited by Katherine Harrington under the new arrangement of providing professionally edited Sculpere to the ASV approximately every second month over the next year.
The next publication will be a simple ASV news sheet in January, with another full Sculpere in February 2011. Katherine as editor will be making a number of changes to the publication, and will welcome feedback to her at the contact address on this page.
Members are asked to note the next ASV exhibition opening Saturday 15 January at Herring Island, where Jenny Rickards will lead off the Herring Island Summer Arts Festival Sequence of Exhibitions.
Members are reminded to plan for works for next year’s exhibitions, following the Herring Island Exhibition: The Elliot ASV Gallery second cycle (members only, early March), The Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show (from 23 March), and the first Castlemaine Exhibition (members only, from 1 April). The coincidence of events should keep everyone very busy.
The new Elliot ASV Gallery opened for the fi rst time on Saturday afternoon, 20 November 2010 at South Yarra, in superb weather and with a good crowd. Wine donated by Kooyonga Chapel Winery and Vineyard was much appreciated. See the report enclosed.
Our Christmas function at Tim and Diane Kervin’s was another very pleasant event, with great
hospitality provided and the customary delicious pavlova. Unfortunately I am short on pictures this year.
We trust members and their families have a good Christmas and a pleasant break, and we look forward to meeting at the Herring Island Exhibition next year.

Saturday 20 November 2010
The Elliot ASV Gallery, at 356-358 Punt Road, South Yarra, 3141, was formally opened on Saturday afternoon with around 70 Elliot patrons and ASV artists present.
Twenty-eight exhibits were shown, both outside in a pleasant courtyard setting and indoors in the Elliot salon. Three pieces sold at the opening. The exhibition has been coordinated by Monica Mauer, and assisted by Michael Meszaros and Marija Patterson. It was convened
using some works from other exhibitions and some new works. Appreciation was expressed to John Elliot for providing the ASV its first ongoing display space.
The exhibition will run until 26 February 2011, and the intention is that a fresh wave of exhibits will be presented for around 3 months from early March.
The exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday 9.00 am to 5.00 pm with viewing on Sunday
and Monday by appointment only.

audience in the Salon.

Featured artist: Michael Meszaros

‘Heliconia’ fabricated copper, 145 cm h x 85 cm w
Michael Meszaros comes from a renowned artistic family. His father Andor Meszaros was a well known sculptor and medal maker, and between he and Michael, they have produced many of the sculptures that you see punctuating the Melbourne city landscape.
Examples of Michael’s major public works include, ‘Birds’ on St. Kilda Rd, ‘Fawkner’ portrait on Collins St, ‘Reredos panel’ at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Warragul and ‘Rainbow’ in Bourke St. Like his father, he is also a highly regarded medal maker and in 1969 he received the Churchill Fellowship to study at the Scuola dell’Arte Della Medaglia, Mint of Rome.
His work is diverse as he creates art in a style appropriate for the commission. “I have never been a believer in the notion of a signature style. I think that it is a limiting and crippling notion which cuts an artist off from most of the wide range of artistic possibilities.”
Michael completed a Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Melbourne in 1968 and attributes his approach to sculptural commissions to his experience working as an architect. “I treat a sculptural commission more like an architect in this regard.”
He attributes his non-adherence to a particular style as being the reason for his longevity in the art world. He has been a full-time artist since 1970. “Regarding the notion of fashion in art- I have come to realise that the way to survive as a sculptor in the long term is to ignore artistic fashions and concentrate on work which has something to say at a deeper level than mere style.”
‘Willy Willy’ Bronze 53 cm h x 19 cm w
His father also worked in a range of styles, including the naturalism that he was most known for, which was against the style of the period which was Abstraction. Meszaros recognises his father’s infl uence on his own work, particularly his versatility, “I am very proud of my father and his work and I have no hesitation in acknowledging that my artistic origins are intimately rooted in his influence”. In 1972, when his father died, Michael took over his father’s business which was in part concerned with the art of medal making. “The Medallion part of my work was also a direct result of his example. My work is very different to his, but the idea of medallic art stems from him.”
‘Feminine Dilemma’ 2009 Bronze (450 mm long and about 350
mm high) (All photography courtesy of the artist)
Michael is always in high demand. He has recently completed a bronze bust, “I am working on two pieces for a client derived from a work I had in the last Annual Show, fabricated in copper. I have just won a commission to do a bronze relief for Mirboo North, in Gippsland to represent the famous photo from the recent bush fires of the man giving a Koala a drink.” He also still creates portrait medals and two exhibition medals are currently being created. “I always have lots of things running parallel, which I like”. His work can also be found in official collections around the world including, Australia, Stockholm, New Jersey, the British Museum, Chrischurch NZ, Warsaw and The Hague.

Vandalism of work by Alan Aston beside Lake George
A life sized sculpture of a herd of Zebras situated on the fringe of Lake George by sculptor, Alan Aston was badly vandalised last July. The sculptor had to remove the sculpture for repairs. Ears, a tail and a head were removed from one of the Zebras; another Zebra was dragged metres from its original position. The sculptor has yet to decide whether to reinstall the work once it has been repaired.
