THE ELLIOTT EYES COLLECTION
Housed in Erskineville, Sydney, at the home of Gordon Elliott and Michael Eyes ‘The Elliot Eyes Collection’ is a private art collection featuring around 330 original works of art amassed over 21 years of collecting. The house is open to the public by regular scheduled visits as well as by appointment and can be viewed on their website here.
The “People’s Choice Award” was commissioned by Elliott & Eyes with the artist Adam Stone from Melbourne who designed the award; a stylised head on a 12cm bronze medallion. It is to be given to the artist who gains the most votes from the public after their visit of the collection.
On May 25th at the Auckland Art Fair The ELLIOTT EYES COLLECTION PEOPLE’S CHOICE FOR 2017 will be awarded to TERRY STRINGER for his numerous bronze sculptures within the collection. His skill and mastery of design allow the viewer to be amazed with many varied aspects to be seen on any one work. As you walk around his sculptures you may see a hand, face, figure, rose etc all incorporated within the one artwork.
Two major works feature in the collection with “A Matter of Perspective” (2m tall) installed in the front garden of the house while “The Wrestlers” (2.4m tall) stands proudly in the lounge.
ARTIS Gallery is proud to be able to host the presentation of this award at our Auckland Art Fair Booth. The award will be presented to Terry Stringer at the ARTIS Gallery booth (A1) at the Auckland Art Fair on Friday, 25th May at 6.00 pm. Both Gordon Elliott (collection owner) and the artist Terry Stringer will be there to talk briefly about his work and their importance within the collection. Also at the Fair will be new works from Terry Stringer on display and available for purchase from ARTIS Gallery.
