Artwork Description

Inspired by a series of photographs I took around Station Pier Melbourne. The eerie AI robotic cranes are replacing human wharfies and changing our societies interface with shipping and freight. Storm clouds approach signifying major change. A mother and child are obliviously playing on the beach, insignificant in the impending momentous change happening to our society. I used simplified geometric forms and flat areas of color to emphasize the detachment of the human experience from the cold potential future reality.


Acrylic paint on stretched canvas.
