Abstract

Augustine (Gus) Dall’Ava is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary sculptors. In a career spanning forty years he has enjoyed both critical and commercial success. In addition to over 20 individual shows, he has won a variety of commissions: Aspects of Time (1981)which is a steel and stone gateway at the University of New South Wales (Sydney, 1981), Ian Potter Sculpture (National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 1981), Melbourne International Airport (Melbourne, 1995), Australian National Korean War Memorial (Canberra, 1997-2000), Deakin University (Melbourne Campus, Victoria, 2000), Pacific Power (Sydney, 2000) and Queens Plaza (Brisbane, 2004). The article is both a biographical overview and a coverage of the creative output of an artist of the “first rank for whom compromise of any kind is out of the question”.
