'Sandman' to feature in art show
By GREG WHITBURN
Brooklyn artist Adam Burstall says
there will be no do not touch'' signs
on his sculptures at this year's New
Zealand Art Show.
Burstall said he encouraged
exhibition-goers to touch his timber,
steel and plaster sculptures.
It's vital to touch the piece and
feel the curves, the roughness or
smoothness,'' he said.
This year will be Burstall's second
at the New Zealand Art Show, and he
hopes it will be an opportunity to
build his profile and share his work
with the public.
pieces he has created, including his
hefty totara sculpture, Borrat's
Glasses, sold at last year's Art Show.
Burstall has had no formal art
training, and said his interest in
sculpture began when he was work-
ing as a cabinet-maker.
I started playing around with tim-
ber and the tools after work and
started creating pieces from there.''
He described his pieces as organic
abstract forms as well as unique
takes on everyday objects''.
He works as a builder by day and
an artist by night, and said he was
hoping to make the transition to
fulltime artist in the near future.
I joined Wai Art in Carterton two
years ago, and have had several
exhibitions and have been a guest
Burstall's other love is sand sculp-
ture, and he can be found most
Sundays sculpting on the shore of
Scorching Bay, where he has been
given the name Sandman'' by locals.
Parents and kids come along, stop
and chat. Scorching Bay is the best
sand in Wellington. It's angular, so it
keys together really well.''
Burstall said he would be
exhibiting three pieces at this year's
Art Show, including a woman's cloak,
made from concrete plaster and
standing 1.5 metres tall.
Of the 500 artists exhibiting at the
show, up to 95 per cent are painters,
so sculpture are in a definite min-
ority, he said.

heritage listings meant the
buildings were recognised and
protected for their heritage
value and any major changes to
