Artists Mark Datodi and Steve Tepper have created a series of external works for Comet Bay College Stage 2. The design for the two free standing sculptural shade structures was based on the silhouette shape of the Stingray. The sculptural wall panels are inspired by the forms of seagrasses. Although linked in theme and colour, each sculptural wall panel is unique, and has been constructed in three layers to create a sense of depth.

Artist: Lorenna Grant
Architect: James Christou + Partners
Art Coordinator: Maggie Baxter

The seemingly simple circular form of Lorenna Grant’s, The Edge is overbalanced by the luscious iridescent enamel lime green and purple paint, decorated with the school’s emblem, the Geraldton Wax flower. The circular symbol of completion is interrupted by a space, a deliberate imperfection that suggests the potential we all have to seek and create our own futures.
