Man, Dog, Boat
Created by Henry Smith. Fibreglass, wood, stainless steel, aluminium
This sculpture is the initial and most prominent piece of public art that guides visitors into the precinct. The composition of the piece makes reference to our unique location and many of the stakeholders that are represented in the Gasworks community. Man, Dog, Boat is a sculpture of a man and dog in a small boat mounted on a wooden pole. Whilst the boat appears to be made from a light-coloured wood, it is in fact made of fibreglass, then painted a yellow ochre with strokes of blue and red. Man, Dog, Boat is located at the Graham and Pickles Street corner.
