    Performance by Wendy Dixon, David Miller from the CD Australian song cycles



Product details

Statues was composed especially for Wendy Dixon & David Miller and takes its text from a Kenneth Slessor poem called 'Realities'. Slessor meditates on the beauty of another dimension or 'reality' within some of the etchings of the artist Norman Lindsay. The 'image' is of statues coming to life, or maybe they have always been alive, behind our own reality? I also took as inspiration the beautiful setting of Norman Lindsay's own statues in the garden of his house at Springwood in the Blue Mountains. A place where on a warm sunny afternoon, time could very well stand still, and this whole other world exist!
