Description

This linocut work is a present day story of Mother Nature. Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasi began forming as a tropical low north-west of Fiji on the 29th January 2011 and proceeded to cross the coast of Australia near Mission Beach, Far North Queensland, 138 km south of Cairns, on Thursday 3rd of February 2011 between midnight and 1am as a Category 5 system.
The strong blade like sections represent the powerful winds bearing down on the communities it devastated, whilst the softer sections represent the minimal winds in outlying regions.
This work represents an exciting new direction that Sam’s work is taking. He is focusing on weather patterns, cycles, and occurrences, along with other forces of nature, as these are of a high cultural importance both in past and present days.
