Apple & Pear

Apple & Pear

winner of People’s Choice, Sculpture By The Bay 2011, this piece represents the problems that have all but destroyed a vibrant apple & pear industry in Australia. A policy of Free Trade adopted by the Australian Government whilst other countries subsidise their farmers and impose tariffs on the import of our products. The unfair trading field has left the apples and pears swinging in the breeze whilst retailers pick and choose from around the world.
