Additional Information

There is more than one way to bridge the gap and this painting takes a journey down the river through the decades. Initially, it was a raft, a boat something that would float livestock, people, belongings, anything across the water – it could take many trips and sometimes things (or dog’s) got left behind. As time passed, construction culminated in the iconic convict built bridges. They were decorative with hand hewn stone, a statement piece that dwarfed anything gone before. To this day, those that have survived are much preserved and treasured as a reminder of the skills of the past. In this painting, the arches of the convict bridge create a frame in which to look into the future and see today’s modern solution, rather ordinary and uninspiring compared to it’s predecessor. In the second arch is a storm water outlet covered in graffiti, contemporary infrastructure that is necessary, but not beautifully crafted like the convict bridge. There is a soft morning light and the water undulates slowly down it’s course. After a trip to my home state of Tassie, I wanted to incorporate some of the special features, like the bridge, that we don’t have so much of here in Queensland. The sides are painted, it’s varnished and ready to hang.
