Artist takes us beneath waves

JARROD Beezley’s artwork literally takes you for a dive beneath local waterways.

The talented local Aboriginal artist is currently displaying his latest artistic adventure – offering 14 acrylic on canvas works which make up the insightful Nyin Gung Wuluwi Salt Water Life: Series Two exhibition.

On display in the Heron Room of the Boyne Tannum Community Centre, the free exhibition can be viewed between 10am and 4.30pm until Saturday.

Jarrod said this exhibition follows on from Series One, launched June two years ago during The Observer Boyne Tannum HookUp.

“This time the works focus on reef species and open waters,” he said.

“I stick to the water themes because we are surrounded by water, reefs and an abundance of sea life which are significant to Gladstone region.”

A recognised Kabi Kabi artist, Jarrod’s works also depict story-telling with river dreamings, personal dreamings and tales of the clan.
