Description

As is common for inner city dwellers in Brisbane, I’ve walked across the Story Bridge many times. When I was a postal worker in Coorparoo, I’d walk from my home in New Farm almost daily. It was always my habit to check the time on the City Hall clock as I passed the single point where it was still visible on the bridge. The clock tower was once the tallest building in Brisbane, now it seems to be drowning in it’s tall, modern neighbours.

Recently I have been exploring the ‘tondo’ format. I started doing this because I had some left over MDF board, so I bought a router and started making circles. They have an intrinsic compositional beauty which I am loving at present.
