The sculpture of Bert Flugelman

Don't miss this...
This exhibition is a major survey of the recent work of distinguished Austrian-born painter, printmaker and sculptor Bert Flugelman.

He is best known for his huge geometric public sculptures in stainless steel, such as his Spheres in Adelaide, the Dobell Memorial in Sydney and The Cones in the National Gallery of Australia's Sculpture Garden (pictured above).

Many generations of ANU students are affectionately familiar with his fountain sculpture Untitled in front of the Bruce Hall of Residence. This exhibition focuses on Flugelman's recent maquettes and medium scale sculptures.
