DESERT, 1986

Andrew Logan

"I sat between Sidney and Mary at a lunch and felt

We had known each other all our lives.

We talked of nature, life, friends, family and art.

It was instant love.

Two days later Sidney died.

I continued to see Mary as my museum The Andrew Logan Museum

Of Sculpture is close to the Rodd.

A mere moment in our lives but a deep meaningful one.

I knew and had seen Sidney's paintings over the years.


I chose DESERT 1986 - art gallery NSW

An explosion of colour and paint in this

Wonderful expression of pure joy of living."

Andrew Logan is an English sculptor, performance artist, jewellery maker and portraitist. The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture is situated on the Welsh borders, a short journey from The Rodd.
