Jimmy Rix's recent commission

Jimmy Rix recently installed his third public commission in Sydney. This time he was commissioned by New South Wales Transport for a large scale sculpture for the newly opened Light Rail Network in Sydney's Inner West. Rix's sculpture titled "Whistle Stop", stands at the entrance of the Hawthorne stop in Leichhardt. Constructed of steel and recycled railway tracks from the old goods line from the area, it is a collossus which stands 7 meters high and 8 meters in length. The sculpture represents the old goods train on its way to deliver wheat to the Mungo Flour Mill from a by gone era.  To view more commission by Jimmy Rix vistit his online gallery of Public Sculpture.
