From over 650 submissions, Studio A artist Guy Fredericks’ small sculpture was selected by judges Joan Ross, Kon Gouriotis OAM and José Da Silva as one of 49 finalists in the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize (2022).

The artwork, named Baby Blue, is a majestic small sculpture of a blue-ringed octopus and was originally made as a prototype for a larger sculpture commissioned by Erth Visual & Physical Inc. to feature in the ‘Inside the Tide’ exhibition at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens as part of the Sydney Festival (2022).

Fredericks’ unique, low-fi, papier-mache technique brought the creature to life, and transformed the usually shy, venomous creature into one which almost asks to be held, with friendly golden eyes, bright blue rings and tentacles that are perfectly folded over an invisible human form.

Guy’s sculpture was displayed in the Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf from 13 October 2022 to 20 November 2022.
