Additional Information about the Print

“Sandgate is a quiet suburb close to the sea where time seems to slow down. On the eastern fringe of a treelined walkway lies a small jetty which leads one far enough from land to gaze at the silhouetted islands and the distant flares of refinery chimneys near the mouth of the Brisbane River.

This etching pays homage to British romantic pastoral printmakers from William Blake to Samuel Palmer to F L Griggs and Graham Sutherland.”

The moonlight in the trees, though they be an Australian species and not elms, bring to mind Palmer’s childhood memory of shadows of branches cast by the moon which gave him his ‘first poetic impulse’.
