Greg Johns – Sculpture Down the Lachlan

In News September 29, 2021

We are delighted to share these images of Greg Johns’ finished sculpture, Within – Without, commissioned by the Sculpture Down the Lachlan trail in Forbes, NSW.

At five metres in height, this work is the most complex sculpture Greg has created, alongside Demill Engineering in South Australia.

A figure within an interconnected web structure appears from one angle only, and the landscape can be seen through this “window” figure. ‘The sculpture changes dramatically as you move around it, moving from chaotic to organised cellular images. It is so difficult these days to make challenging contemporary sculpture, my thanks to the commissioners.’ – Greg Johns

A permanent, inland sculpture trail like no other. Sculpture Down the Lachlan (SDL) trail was the vision of Australian artist, Rosie Wingrove Johnston. A 100km sculpture trail between Forbes and Condobolin along the Lachlan River – a “bush version” of Sydney’s famous ‘Sculpture By The Sea’. Within months the community took hold of this concept whole heartedly. The aim? To create an art trail of international recognition in order to generate tourism and diversify the rural economy.
