KAB Gallery proudly represents Gillie and Marc in our collection and are so excited to see their work featured in Sculpture by the Sea exhibition for 2016. It is estimated to bring in a whooping two million visitors and therefore, the perfect platform to launch their current project for saving Rhinos.

“We, along with the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition and The Australian Rhino Project, want to raise awareness about how vulnerable these magnificent creatures are while also highlighting their beauty. So we’ll be making the world’s biggest rhino sculpture called Buried Rhino for this year’s Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.” – Gillie and Marc, 2016

After working on this project through raising awareness and funding this project, Gillie and Marc have become great examples of the impact art can have on world issues. Alt-Media interviewed them on their mission – “Gillie and Marc have earnt a solid reputation as rhino artists and have made rhino sculptures that have been placed all over Australia including Dubbo Zoo and Federation Square in Melbourne. But now they want to do something with even more of an impact, by exhibiting the world’s biggest rhino sculpture in this year’s Sculpture by the Sea right in the middle of stunning Tamarama Beach.”

Naming their token Rhino, Shandu the huge buried fibreglass rhino at Tamarama Beach is showing ‘how lucky we are to live in Australia and play on our beaches but it also reminds us that elsewhere in the world Rhinos are not so lucky, however as Australians we can help save the Rhino from being buried forever.’

Congratulations to Gillie and Marc on this ambitious artwork and installation, you have proved the amazing determination of you both as artists and as advocates for such a great cause!
