CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A mixed media sculpture of a blue curved form wave (resembling the hull of a ship) with a small boat on top attached by coloured cords. On the boat is a portrait of a ship surrounded with branches of vegetation. The piece was part of Wyse’s retrospective exhibition in 2011 at the OAG, Wyse Works: Exposing the Inevitable. The work reflects Wyse’s exploration of formalism, with references to folk art and his political critic of ships and seafaring impact on the environment.
