Old Jetty Berry's Bay


"Images are the native language of the imagination. This is why most people don’t dream in text. Making images is not only an art, but a visual form of communication that is as rich and as complex as written language. The most fundamental way to make an image is to draw." Brent Eviston, artistsnetwork.com 2016

I like to draw. It's the way I start any of my art projects. As Eviston says:

 "Drawing is an active way of engaging reality, to observe, analyze, and record it with the possibility of reimagining it."

I am not short of local inspiration on the northern edge of Sydney Harbour. Currently, I am drawing a nearly-collapsed timber jetty in Berry's Bay. Access is restricted as the structure is dangerous and its days are limited. My works are inspired by plan views taken by my son using his drone.
