“Noon” Oil on canvas 122x76cm Sue Jarvis 2019
Silhouette simplifies to create symbolism and allow for individual interpretation of an artwork.
Australians on the beach has been re-interpreted for decades.
In this work we could see individual floating objects which are symbolic of the beach on a sunny day
or shared ownership of the beach as a public space used by people from all cultural backgrounds
or most beach goers sheltering from the midday sun as was the inspiration for this work
