The boat yards rust into the water. Low tide grounds the dinghy. But the spirit and energy of nature gives the the pelicans wings.
The vitality of these magnificent birds is expressed in the brush stroke. The one-eyed stare. The long and distingushed bill. And the soft cloak of black and white. Phillip Farley paints their personality, their good humour and thier soul with intricate detail and generous emotion.
And as the strong Australian sunlight ripples vivid reflections of the old boat yards, it gives us all a chance to reflect upon the temporal qualities of the handiwork of man compared with the long bill, benevolent stare and enduring qualities of nature.
