Cockatoo Series 2014

A tribute to the silent sentinels, -the giant abandoned cranes of the Cockatoo Island dockyard.

Around these decaying monoliths the ghosts of the past still seem to hover. Their delapitated windows and doorways seem like eyes peering on the world watching as though in silent protest of their fate.

This series of mixed media work attepts to record the atmosphere they evoke, the life they still seem to exude, and pay a tribute to their past glory.
