Contemporary Sculpture, Figurative, Musician Statue
Gillie and Marc were commissioned by Invercargill Council to create a bronze sculpture of composer and Invercargill legend, Alex Lithgow. A composer of great renown, his marches were published throughout the world and the Americans acclaimed him as ‘the Sousa of the Antipodes’. Lithgow produced approximately two hundred marches, as well as numerous pieces for band, orchestra, piano and voice. The artists wanted to honour his time in Invercargill, where he spent time from ages 6-24.
Alexander Frame Lithgow (1 December 1870 in Glasgow – 12 July 1929 in Launceston, Tasmania) was a Scottish-born, New Zealand and Australian based composer and bandleader known as the "Sousa of the Antipodes". His name is pronounced "Alek" by his family. Gillie and Marc created him in bronze for Invercargill Council in New Zealand.
