Over a number of years when he lived at Little Cove artist David Parker took the opportunity to immerse himself in the natural beauty of Noosa Heads National Park and the memories of that time that inspired his exhibition, By the Waterside, which opens on Friday 11 January at 5.30pm at Wan’din’in arts space at Eumundi.
“The Park is, as I have found in later years, a rare place of unusual rock formations, pristine coves and hidden places which can make you feel like you are in the dawn of creation, when everything was perfect,” David said.
“The park also has her moods, as when the threat of cyclones come and huge swells boom in the bays, and the world renowned surf breaks come alive. I was lucky enough to have my share of the offerings of the sea, yet the sea can be an uncompromising mistress, and break you on her shores or sink you deep into her depths, where you rise gasping and grasping for breath and life. The sea is both beautiful and forbidding, and is forever a part of me”.
The exhibition runs until Saturday 9 February at the art space behind Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre, 73 Memorial Drive, Eumundi. More information at www.discovereumundi.com/arts-space/calendar
