The Swan - Playground of Perth
Popular award-winning image was created for an invited artists' exhibition 'The Two Rivers Project' displayed at the stunning Heathcote precinct in Western Australia in November 2005.
The City of Perth, capital of Western Australia is on the Swan River and Point Heathcote, Applecross (where the exhibition was held) is where the Canning River flows into the Swan. I contrasted the two rivers, the brashness of the Swan and the quiet mystery of the Canning...

'The Swan seems to me to represent our way of life – it is the playground of Perth and reflects our outdoor lifestyle – so many people love messing about in boats.
When I look at the Swan I see rocks, limestone and sand; I see the City of Perth in the distance through the masts of rows and rows of yachts; and I see people quietly enjoying the foreshore – in this case fishing.'
