At The Jetty With Alphonse
Medium: digital print triptych - archival inks on acid free paper
Have you ever tried to create a picture by using the least amount of design elements? This triptych of digital prints is a result of that creative challenge. I wanted to capture the essence of the beach, ocean and the jetty with just two lines and the space between them. When I felt I had achieved this, I framed them in a circle and surrounded this with shapes reminiscent of Alphonse Mucha’s work, a graphic designer whose work I like to reference. These shapes then became receptacles for images that connect todays Jetty and buildings with its past. I then created prints of the Old Court House and Railway Station buildings, to sit on either side of the Jetty to complete the triptych.
