A couple of photo essays on the Venice Biennale of 2019.
These photos were made at Aldinga Beach from the mid 1990s to the end of 2018. I am still trying to paint those cliffs.
They are part photo, part memory, and part of an exploration of how we see things.
They will be on display at Rosey’s Aldinga – it’s a cafe so you can have a coffee or lunch. Address is 206 Port Rd Aldinga, and you can check out their opening hours and all the other stuff on their Facebook page
On the first of May 2017, Margot and I packed our bikes onto a plane to Paris.
Then, breathing deeply of second-hand cigarette smoke, we put them together in a taxi rank at Charles de Gaulle airport and rode off on our adventure.
More than two months later, we packed the bikes in Barcelona for the trip home.
To see what happened in between – click on the photo essay below. In six parts, each links to the next:
Thanks to all who read and commented on “Figure in the Landscape”
The story is now finished: Draft version 1.0 created as PDF and epub
There were twenty two sessions originally published on the blog. There are 48 sessions in total.
I am very grateful for the feedback received and interest shown, and this has certainly helped shape the story. Writing the story and the doing the paintings together has been a very good experience.
I’ve decided not to publish more episodes as blog entries, as I don’t want to spoil the beginning by revealing the ending.
The curent plan is to produce a printed work to coincide with the exhibition of the paintings.
