Artist in residence with Johannes Pannekoek

The decision to sell his commercial business was the first of many steps into the unknown Johannes Pannekoek has taken in his pursuit of a career in art.

That was just more than a decade ago, and the initial decision has been validated many times, with the Gooseberry Hill-based Mr Pannekoek having won numerous accolades, a permanent spot for one of his pieces near the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as well as being selected to showcase at the annual Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe for the fifth time.

Sponsored by Rio Tinto and Alcoa of Australia, the 13th Sculpture by the Sea opened last Friday, with Mr Pannekoek one of 78 artists from 16 countries exhibiting at Cottesloe Beach this year.
