Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge : Wood and Metal

As part of “Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge : Metal & Wood“, I’m posting 3 photographs taken in Glenrothes Town Park. This metal sculpture, called ‘Forest Screens’ was designed by the artist Malcolm Robertson in 1987. It was originally placed in the Glenwood Shopping Area, in a part of Glenrothes known as Macedonia, but was later moved to its present position in the Town Park.

  1. It’s Macedonia that I grew up in (I should get a t-shirt that adds “and I survived”) so I know these well but they’ve definitely been given a thorough scrub and spruce up since I saw them last. I think they look rather lovelier in their new setting, don’t you?

  2. Aren’t these great, Andy? A work of art that also can be a child’s playground, an adult’s contemplative art and relaxation subject and something through which we can see different light and viewpoints. That is multi-tasking!!! LOL!! I really like them.

    • It is beautiful Gilly, and you’re right, it’s in a far better spot now (even if it is in an obscure part of the town park) than it was in the shopping area! 🙂 As I’ve said a couple of times in previous comments, at the risk of boring everyone, I’m going to do a series of posts in the relatively near future on the various (and numerous) pieces of public art found in public places in Glenrothes 🙂

  3. They’re gorgeous ! Less is more love these ‘stencil’ sculptures . In very good condition considering .. I see from a comment from Laura they’ve perhaps had a bit of a brush up 😉
