Getting it Just Right

@ VOL 2 ON JUN 26, 2014

As a local surf life-saver and regular ski-paddler, David Kernick has spent many years on the beautiful local waterways or surfing the beaches. His view of the local area comes from a different perspective to most as he regularly paddles in the late afternoon light and has seen many spectacular sunsets. This passion for water and low light is reflected in much of his photographic work and he enjoys the peacefulness and serenity of shooting nature, water, and landscapes. David also loves the social interaction of portrait photography and watching his subjects develop in confidence, capturing their personalities and in particular seeing the smile on their faces when they see the final product.

"Presentation of the Day" on September 15, 2014.

Ocean of Art

@ VOL 21 ON MAY 18, 2017

"To me, my art now tells a story between nature and humanity, a push and pull, love and betrayal type of visual dialogue that exposes my emotional connections with the ocean."

In Ocean of Art from Pechakucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 21, we hear from Scott Denholm, a contemporary ocean artist. His art focuses on the ocean and explores the emotional relationships that we have with it. Through his life as a surfer and conservationist, he has sought to capture semi-abstract moments that resonate with people from all walks of life. His paintings are also created with environmentally friendly art materials. In his presentation, he wants to focus on these emotional relationships and explore them through his new series, "Elevation".
