Within Three Worlds
by Loretta Quinn
1995 | Princes Park, North Carlton
Angela Jane Esdaile was 24 years old when she died of acute asthma in December 1993, while walking with friends along Rye beach. She was a tireless community worker, who made a significant contribution to the community, particularly with regards children and young adults.
Following Angela's death, her family donated funds towards a memorial artwork. In 1994, local artist Loretta Quinn was commissioned to undertake the work, which would commemorate Angela's contribution to the community, as well as those of all childcare workers.
Within Three Worlds comprises a bronze figure of a young girl looking towards three boat-like vessels from the edge of a pond. The figure represents Anna as a child, but is an 'every child' that embodies the innocence of youth and possibilities of the future.
More gestural than literal, the vessels, with their highly decorative surfaces, symbolise the passage from this world to the next.
Stolen & Restored Statue
May 27, 2011 | By Mark Holsworth
In 2010 thieves stole Loretta Quinn's sculpture 'Within Three Worlds' from Princess Park. It was stolen using an angle grinder to cut the bronze statue off at its feet. Now, in 2011, a new edition of the statue has been cast and it has now been installed in its original location.
