Finally I have had the opportunity to assuage my curiosity and see it all, as Kenny has opened his garden and sculpture collection for a winter viewing during December. 'Robolights and Beyond' as the exhibition is called, is a fantasy of sculptured aliens, robots and santas, mostly made of recycled materials welded or fused together and painted brilliant colors. The many sculptures are set in the landscaped grounds, interspersed with huge inflated santas and snowmen. The whole garden is festooned with thousands, maybe millions of tiny lights which together with the fans for the inflatables, lead to a monthly electricity charge of $12,000. Apparently this Christmas opening used to be a regular event but the neighbours complained (spoilsports!) so there has been a break for a number of years. Apologies for the quality of the next pics taken at night with a strange camera.

Is it art? Is it a garden? You decide!
