Gear Head, Sea of Memory

Gear Head deals with my interest in gears as shapes, and as symbols. The gear head depicted here is strangely flexible, able to keep the machine going, regardless of gear size and axis.

Sea of Memory is about cultural icons and their transience. The sea coast often plays tricks on the mind, what with the weather and stone shapes, which coax the imagination to see faces and figures. In the foreground is a profile of JFK, mid ground Chaplin, background, the Sphinx. In the extreme foreground are poles from a vanished quay, a harbour that might be hard to dock at.
