From the artist

Made on location in Battery Point, I have sought to document the shifting and reflected light as the sun goes down, and the massing of clouds in an expansive Derwent Estuary. As a visitor, I was seeking to convey thoughts of remoteness and the vast space and distance that lie beyond.
