Description

Balmoral - the popular Sydney beach is albeit deserted under a blazing sunset no one is appreciating. It is more impressionist in style than Cirsky's usual work – and asks the seemingly obvious question: “Why is something so beautiful being ignored?” Upon closer observation, a Facebook shark (not a soundwave) lurks in the shallows and various smartphone app logos + social media have claimed this territory - and swallowed self-indulged Instagramming beachgoers. The rest choose to sit at home on their computers… watching Youtube slideshows of beaches. Ultimately, when you travel to a place to enjoy it and stare at technology… how deep is your pleasure?

Impasto technique was applied to the sandstone figural rocks for further effect.
