Horizons by Neil Dawson UP105

Neil Dawson’s 1994 “Horizons” installation is one of the earliest sculptures to be commissioned for the Gibbs Farm in New Zealand. Sitting on one of the highest points on the property it is also one of the few works that can be seen from the road. This seems fitting given the way the tromp l’oeil character of the work is suggestive of a giant piece of corrugated iron that might have blown in from a collapsed water tank on some distant farm, only to rest precariously until the next gale lifts it into the air again.
