The Sandman At Work
For the last ten years, New Zealand’s artist Peter Donnelly has practiced his ephemeral art at the beach. “Many tourists and local residents can find Peter down at the beach, low tide, most Sundays working beside the New Brighton pier carving the sand”. “It’s a celebration, – he says – in a sacred way, sharing the process of creation. It’s good for putting something into large scale that is small inside yourself”. Sometimes people ask him about a drawing. ‘What is it?’ – they ask. And Peter says: “Sand”.

Peter Donnely is quite a performer in his art. He dances and enjoys every moment of his creative endeavors.
