An afternoon of discovery

Following on from my previous post, here are further images from my Jetty Series , some of which appeared in the "Connecting Threads" exhibition.

My work evolves from my life experiences. Walking the length of the Bussleton Jetty on a bleak grey afternoon, I was drawn by the unfolding stories in the jetty’s surface.

They spoke of life.

The jetty is aged and weathered, bearing the scars of hard times and makeshift repairs. IMG_5561_crop_400

There is evidence of the occasional left hand turn IMG_5587_400

and even a little blood letting. IMG_5548_400

The jetty wears all these marks with dignity and grace. A lifetime of hard experience has enriched this wonderful old structure, ensuring that an afternoon spent in its company is a deeply rewarding experience.
