What's Happening At The Popeye?

Artist Carly Snoswell was commissioned by the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation to create the Popeye floating artwork in celebration of the 100th anniversary of James Ramsay’s birth.

Working in partnership with Guildhouse, The Popeye, and the City of Adelaide to bring the idea to life, the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation’s artwork commission celebrates James and Diana Ramsay’s special relationship with South Australia and the visual and performing arts throughout their lifetimes, a connection that continues through the work of the Foundation.

The artwork was delivered by Guildhouse and received support from the City of Adelaide Reignite project, with input from Graphic Designer Jenna Pippett, lighting by Taylor Chadwick at light-ctrl, vinyl by Visualcom, and Double Diamond as fabrication contractors.

Carly Snoswell’s floating artwork, Good Job, is a joyful celebration of simple daily pleasures and accomplishments, basking in the nostalgia of the iconic Popeye boat along Karrawirra Pari. The gold stars, a symbol of a job well done, epitomise the small achievements in our lives, the happy moments, turning those tiny glimmers into big giant wins.

Stars hold significant meaning to Kaurna language and culture. The river, a mirror of the Milky Way in the night sky, sparkles with reflected stars in the natural landscape. ‘Marngu-marngu’, or ‘speckled’, highlights the many circles of the stars, the glimmering reflection of the water, and in this case the sequins that bring this artwork together.

Carly worked in consultation with Kaurna and Narungga man Jack Buckskin of Kuma Kaaru Cultural Services to realise the artwork’s references to Kaurna language and culture.
