The biggest Van Gogh sunflower painting in the world is found in Morton Park, Emerald, Central Queensland, Australia. This superstructure is 25 meters high, and the painting itself measures 7 x 10 meters, sitting on a 17,000 kilogram steel easel.
The huge sunflower painting is part of a concept by artist Cameron Cross who wants to erect a total of seven gigantic Sunflower Sculptures in also seven different countries. Cross want to make seven reproductions of Van Gogh’s seven different Sunflower paintings. The Sunflower Painting in Emerald was completed on November 8, 1999, and it celebrates the role of Australia’s Central Highland, and Emerald in particular, as a major sunflower producer.
Canadian artist Cameron Cross came to the idea to erect seven Sunflower sculptures and as far as I know there were three of these gigantic reproductions realized over the years, So far Cross’ project has unveiled three sites, the first in Altona, Canada (1998), the second in Emerald, Australia (1999), and the third in Goodland, Kansas, U.S. (2001).
Future big reproductions are planned in Japan and South Africa. I don’t know how far Cross has gotten with realizing his plans, and if you know, we would appreciate if you would inform us.
