Karl Meyer with Exhibition Studios

The sQuiggle artwork was created by Karl Meyer with Exhibition Studios to mark the main entrance of the Quentin Kenihan's Inclusive Playspace. Inspiration for the artwork came from the playspace's main champion and namesake Quentin Kenihan. The vision was to express Quentin’s passion, including his enthusiasm for superheroes such as Superman. The bold use of red is dynamic, represents power, is ‘superman-like’ and references his fondness of Christmas time. In a broader context, the form and its colour suggest a fiery nature, brightness and willpower.

sQuiggle’s sculptural form seeks to expresses playful, childlike characteristics, determination and heart. The three-dimensional line has cheeky curves that weave around itself, creating engaging intertwining forms. Visually the form provides subtle gestures to the Knot by Bert Flugelman, oblique upper and lower-case Q’s as well as crazy straws. The curved forms have connection to the playspace elements and immediate flora.
