Sunday, June 25 Β· 10am – 3pm, ‘Inner Essence’ live art & gallery is thrilled to present ‘Gods’ Ashby’s most ambitious work to date. An exhibition of new sculpture works, unveiling during Winter Solstice 2023. The 14 sculptures taken from Metro Tunnel, Swanston St and Pentridge prison, Coburg are to be set free inside the 1.5 hectare gardens nestled in the rolling hills of West Gippsland at Broughton Hall. Ashby’s work is informed by an interest in energy, light and art history. Often displaying his response to place and space through geometry, aura and frequency.

Join us for a morning fire meditation, facilitated by ‘Somisan’ energy healer Philip Hunter. A musical resonance to follow by Solana The Artist, as you enjoy a warming morning tea. Be witness to the feminine embodiment performance into stone, by award recognised sound alchemist, tantric female emotional embodiment facilitators selected by Ashby.

The creation of ‘Gods’ was a heavy endeavour over 3 years by Brett Ashby and 6 months with steel fabricator Wayne McQuilten. The fourteen, 3D sculptures are to be positioned in ‘The Completion’, a 10m gravel circle within David’s spectacular terraced charmed garden. The sculptures will receive a traditional smoke ceremony and be set free in positive spirit by Shane Clayton, from Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation.

You’ll gain access to the charmed garden at Broughton Hall which truely is a celebration – of natural landscape, of human connection and endeavour, and of the sheer beauty of plants. It is also a story of transformation. Lunch is included and served by The Gippsland Grazer at 1pm, with refreshments at bar prices.

A day event not to be missed, see yourself inside the sacred geometry, 10m circle artwork, support the awakening of the stones. Many people believe that the Full Moon can clear a stone’s energy and also recharge the positive energies or natural properties that it holds, to start again.
