Nov 15th, 2016: Silos

Quote:
Guido van Helten has turned the tiny town of Brim, with a population of about 100, into a tourist destination overnight, and
social media is cluttered with photos of his work.


Quote:
People are in awe of the four characters, standing 30 metres tall, on the iconic Australian structures. But they want answers.
"Who are these people?" "Are they Brim locals?" "What are their stories?"

They are questions repeated over and over again on social media, so ABC Rural tracked the characters down. You will not,
however, find the real stories of those people here, because Guido van Helten requested the mystery be maintained.

"I don't want this to be about individual people specifically," he said. "It's about this place, it's about the community and, on a
broader scale, the whole Wimmera region. "If you leave the anonymity to these people and people see whoever they want to see,
they can have their own connection to the work."
I think he's right, if they told you the one on the left is Joe, a farmer with six kids who drinks too much and beats his wife, it would kind of
spoil the power of this work.

Silos.......

I am always amazed that artists have the ability to maintain perspective, depth and continuity on piece of art this size.

Hell, I'm amazed that artists can do that on any size piece of art
it's just that much more amazing on something of this scale.
