WestWylong_roadInfluential Australian artist Russell Drysdale became an iconic figure after painting a series of landscapes of drought-ravaged 1940s New South Wales. Drysdales painting “West Wyalong” is  recreated in bronze by Gillie and Marc for the town as a 3D version.

“This interactive sculpture is placed on the street at the exact angle Drysdale painted from,” says Gillie. “We’ve recreated the streetscape, only it is more than double the original size. It’s a real landmark for West Wyalong.”
