Retrospect Galleries, Byron Bay – Friday 21 October to Wednesday 9 November

Opening 6pm Friday October 21

Coinciding with the inaugural Byron Bay Surf Festival, Retrospect Galleries explores the notion of contemporary surf culture in a fine art context. Featuring some of our favourite stable of artists and international guests. Artists include Alberto Sanchez (SPAIN), Alby Falzon, Andrew Kidman, Charlie Gordon, Hanai Yusuke (JAPAN), James McMillan, John Culqui (USA), Luke Hallam, Luke Taaffe, Mark Sutherland, Mick Waters, Ron Weiderman, Rusty Miller, Stephen Phibbs and Vanessa Janss.

Overview of my work for this show: A surfer sees the ocean differently, they can’t help but place themselves out amongst the conditions, visualising the experience that awaits; exhilarating, frightening, calming, or potentially disappointing. I love capturing what I see when I look at the ocean, with special attention placed on the surface quality of the water, the constantly shifting light and the theatre of the majestic locations surfing often exposes me to.
