Artist statement: I can float just a metre or a hundred metres above the sea and it always amazes me what is revealed from above. Kelp, rocks, reef, sand, currents, sea-life and the intense colours of each element filtered through aerated, churning water. The area just beyond the wave is often the most interesting.
If I place a person amongst it all, it may make more sense, but the abstractness of it remains, often until I explain what's in the frame. I like the fact that the viewer is puzzled by it all, which way is up, why the colours and shapes are not ordered as we imagine.
