Wellington Point sculptor Peter Steller has picked up three significant wins with two firsts and one second prize in this year's sculpture section of the Ekka.
First prizes were given for his piece Drifting Elegance in class two abstract and or stylised with the judges stating that the piece could be appreciated as pure form or as a stylised plant form soaring upwards.
Mr Steller said the work was inspired by the treble clef symbol and his love of sailing.
Steller also took out a first place for his work Mr Percival in the outdoor sculpture section. He said he enjoyed portraying characteristics of the pelican in a non-traditional, abstract way and was inspired for the work from living at the bay.
Second place was given for Where's my Reef which reflects the loss of reef habitat for fish. The judges said the work was deceptive in its apparent simplicity and was both strong and graceful.
Mr Steller's work is on display in the fine arts pavilion of the Brisbane Ekka from August 9 to 18. A new feature of the fine arts is a millinery section.
