Fishing Over Uluru

This sculpture is inspired from my ‘Fishing’ series.  It comes from the boat sitting on the edge of the reef, just in balance between the enormous depths of the ocean and the shallows of the reefs.  My other inspiration for this sculpture is the great outback of Australia and the stories and dreamings of the original people at their sacred site, Uluru.

I see this sculpture as representing a part of the great journey of life, the vehicle, the boat, traveling through the night sky, its great net collecting the dreams of the people on the land, treasures in the making.
