Test-GWFPeter Lynch Project Director, GWF MMJ Real Estate (WA) I have had the pleasure of working with Ken Sealey, for the past 18 months on the redevelopment of the old Watsonia factory in Spearwood, which is currently being subdivided into 350 residential lots. Ken was commissioned to undertake the public art scope of works after being successful in the award of works through a competitive process with other artists. Not only have the 6 public art works been completed well ahead of schedule, it has given the project a greater public profile through the creation of what can only be described as a fabulous representation of the history of the site, with some materials being retrieved to add enormous interest in the art. The associated publicity has been a great benefit for the project. I have enjoyed my contact with Ken, from a personal viewpoint, and would not hesitate to recommend him to undertake public art projects, with both his creative and practical flair a bonus. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss his suitability.
Test-BeseechJacinta Anthony. Manager Community Development City of Vincent. Earlier this year Ken Sealey was commissioned to create the Public Artwork "Beseech". Due to unforeseen circumstances the work had to be re-sited at the last minute and is now installed on the grounds of the City of Vincent Administration and Civic Centre on the corner of Loftus and Vincent Street. Ken was professional and adaptable enough to take this in his stride. The new site presented some challenges but Ken quickly overcame then. The work was finished on budget, on schedule and to the highest standard. In addition to being very creative, Ken is a very practical person with many years experience who was able to manage the project very efficiently. The City is very fond of the work and it is highly regarded by the local community who have embraced it enthusiastically. I am happy to recommend Ken as a Public Artist.
Test-DiveRanjith Weddikkara. Senior Architect. Bollig Design Group. Mr Ken Sealey has produced some very innovative and interesting sculptures including the “Dive” he created at the Melville Aquatic Fitness Centre for the City of Melville. I find this piece of Art has been created with a high level of expertise and an equally high level of technical knowledge. The medium he worked with fitted perfectly with the nature of the establishment. Ken worked very well in a team environment consisting of many different professionals and disciplines. He was able to complete the project within budget and his contribution included a full understanding of the opportunities and constraints of the commission. The “Dive” related to the environment and the functionality of the location depicting the true sense of the aquatic nature of the establishment. I commend his work and recommend his expertise to anyone who requires his skills in creating a work of Art.
