Magical Creatures

Magical Creatures

As an artist I work in many media from drawing and works on paper, to projection and sound scape. In contrast to the high tech of digital imaging recent works are assemblage sculptures simply made of drift wood and feathers all found on the wetlands and beaches of my island home. Attached are a gathering of these supernatural beings, suspended infront of shadows almost more alive than they are. Snake Bird to me is almost a creational being, there is an elephant posing as a dragonfly and another is the scull of a unicorn wolf. Winged Three Legged Horse promises sublime journeys through the ether. All were in a group exhibition part of Canaipa Mudlines: Environmental Art at Redlands Art Gallery, Nandeebie in the Quandamooka.

South Eastern Littoral, Canaipa (Russell Island)

A gathering of artful souls, met on the Russell Island May 17 for inaugral Canaipa Mud Lines.

‘Canaipa Mud-lines extends the art in environment programme to the Southern Moreton Bay island region. Canaipa island (also known as Russell Island) is the starting point for a traversal of this region through art in the environment interventions. Canaipa Island hugs the western side of Minjerriba (North Stradbroke Island) and is characterised by a range of mangrove species,¬†¬†vast wetlands and littoral stretches. The creative outcomes from these monthly excursions will form the contents of this page’.
