artist statement

Born of trade, they now lie easily and exposed as though ancient relics of a bygone faith, empty, looted, burnt - in a state of stable decay.

When inside one is blinkered from the surrounds and the gaze drawn to sea - the source of their story.


special note

This installation was undertaken within the context of the Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2009 Exhibition (March 5 - 24), at Cottesloe Beach, Perth WA.
