I entered this work into a major art competition here in Auckland last week - the North Shore City Art Awards 2008 -so far I have been accepted to submit the piece for the second selection round.
The theme of the exhibition is “Earth, Wind & Sky”.
My work is entitled “Headland” & is 36inx20in. It’s a section of a blue drum I found, cut to shape & flattened out. The blue is sky, the scratches are suggestive of land forms, & the white stripe which I have painted represents a yacht mast.

To me it is reminiscent of midnight in the deep, with a piercing shaft of light illuminating various pieces of underwater life.

Thanks for that different perspective - a very valuable insight. Meaning truely resides with the reader!
