Gawler Southern Gateway Entrance Statement
|Town or Locality:||Evanston South|
The Town of Gawler has recently appointed renowned Adelaide artist Greg Johns to construct his sculptural work “Land Lines” at the southern entrance of Gawler to appropriately address the historical significance, economic development, rural aesthetic and future vision of the Gawler Township.
The importance of the artwork is to enrich many of the quintessential qualities of Gawler which are defined through the unique nature of its topography, panoramic views and pastoral land uses that separate the town physically and culturally from the northern suburbs of Adelaide. The project is two sculptures located on either side of Main North Road between Tiver Road and the Gawler Bypass. Each sculpture consists of twenty-five elements made of weathering steel to reflect the colours of the Australian inland.
During installation the elements will be positioned along a wavering landscaped mound that stretches out over one hundred metres which will create a visual illusion that the sculptures move when you drive past.
