Additional Information

From “The River” series

A cool white ghost gum leans over the gushing stream as rounded boulders heat in the sun. It is the place of the water python, of water myths and the shadows of time.

In the tree bark an old local legend is incised, the legend of Guran’gatch the rainbow snake who carved out these highland ravines during a duel with Mirragan the tiger cat.

Neither abstract nor surreal, yet both, the inverted currents of this work suggest a dialogue of time with eternity. The snake motif repeats and the water flows magically uphill. Ambiguity is presented with startling certitude. It is as if the tree were a river, or the river a tree. Rocks cut the water, yet the water cuts the rock.
