Last week I showed you an totemic shoreline on a small island off BC’s Sunshine Coast. This week I’m taking you to a much wilder location, on the Central Coast – West Beach, on the exposed outer coast of Calvert Island.
I love what seems like a mix of hard and soft textures in the weathered granite walls, that rise up at the edge of the long stretch of sand. With their creases and rounded contours, they almost look alive.
They’re a reminder that although the earth’s crust looks dauntingly solid and eternal, it’s actually in constant change: cracking, shifting, fracturing and eroding over time.
Textures of Time is one of the 38 images currently on display in my show, Reflections on the Coast. Most are of the BC coast, but some of my favorites from our garden, forest and wildlife here on Gabriola are also included, along with a few abstracts. All are available for purchase. If you are able to get to Gabriola between now and November 30, I hope you’ll drop by the see the show, and I welcome your feedback.
