Elevation is an exhibition of painted works by visual artist Karen McClurkin. These works are a combination of cloud studies and built structure. Together, these two elements create a fictional space juxtaposed between organic shape and linear perspective.
A collaboration between award-winning bronze artist Chris Siemer and emerging photographer Love Childs (Lucy Vincent), the grandfather-daughter duo have consolidated their respective classic and modern artistry to forge a dynamic, coastal-focused exhibition.
From ancient Polynesian wooden boards through to the discovery of foam and fibreglass in the 1960’s, from the psychedelic era of the 1970’s to the 3 fin revolution of the 1980’s and into high tech performance in the 1990’s, the evolution of surfing has mirrored the evolution of surfboard design. Form, colour and design evolution over the years are captured in this exquisite collection of fully restored surfboards.
