The artistic intent was to convey a joyous performance venue image, at the same time alluding to the particular spiritual and physical context of place. The Federation Cross and balancing horizontal and nameplate, in polished stainless steel, anchor the other elements of the overall composition. The pair of masks, traditionally associated with theatrical performance, hint to Tasmanian context.
a layering of rhythmical planes; suggestive both of the MacKillop Hills and the flags of ceremony and performance
the incised six point stars; historically a symbol of creation, and echoing to theatrical stardom and the Australian sky and flag
The bright powdercoat colouring of these stainless steel elements contrasts with the polished brightness of the Federation Cross. The perforated surface creates layers of complexity.
