Creativity knows no boundaries, and artists Carolyn Doherty and Ken Irvine-Brown have investigated many ideas over the years; their art practice spans a number of formats including works on paper, oil painting and wooden assemblages created from discarded piano parts.

Passionate about music, Kens often sees pictures in the lyrics and when he found a discarded piano by the side of the road it was a chance to minimise ‘junk’ going into landfill and ensure the music lived on. See which songs you recognise…

The amazing rock formation at Freshwater Beach demonstrated the power and creativity of nature; too seldom do we stop to look at those colours and forms. The forms needed no abstraction – nature had done it! In the wider landscape the colours underneath shine through and Carolyn’s work shows insight into nature’s processes.
