Carlingford sculptor wins with bronze

SCULPTOR Argo Ho has won his fourth award at the Sculptors Society Darling Park Exhibition since migrating from Hong Kong in 2008.

The Carlingford man was awarded the PricewaterhouseCoopers Prize for his bronze sculpture Twist coming second this year.

He was the first Asian-born artist to win the top prize — the Franco Belgiorno Nettis Transfield Holdings Prize for his sculpture Delicacy in 2009 and major awards, the Crawfords Casting Prize and People's Choice Award in 2010.

"I didn't expect to win another major prize in this prestigious sculpture competition. I'm really thrilled," Mr Ho said.

"Twist is a dynamic sculpture measuring 27cm by 28cm by 50cm with two parts joined together as one piece.

"There are tension and connections between these two parts which create an interesting structure with various forms and spaces."

Mr Ho is holding a solo exhibition of 15 sculptures at his Silent Fire Bronze Exhibition at Hong Kong House, 80 Druitt Street, Sydney from September 14 to 27.
