910mmL x 610mmH x 30mmD / Acrylic on Canvas

I visit this place almost every-day during my daily commute to the CBD via the Brisbane City-Cat. Some days are calm, others dramatic and angry as depicted here. The work is in many ways a self-portrait displaying the raging conflict of the man-made and natural represented by the sky/water and the geometric forms of the City-Cat stop. This fits into a wider body of work where organic natural forms represent my loose artistic self against the geometric structures of my rigid architectural persona. In this work all the elements seem to be sliding off the page into an unknown abyss, a loss of control in these strange unsettling times.
