Looking at an exhibition of contemporary textiles at the Sturt Gallery in Mittagong recently made me think of lines and stripes at pools. Called Parallels, artist Barbara Rogers explored the “diversity and language of the stripe; the simplest of all patterns…”
Some of her silk textiles reminded me of particular pools especially ones she created in shades of green and blue.
When I saw this one hanging in the gallery space I immediately thought of the Bondi Icebergs.
Sometimes they are fleeting like the shadows that fall on surfaces around a pool.
And occasionally they form naturally in the underwater beauty of an ocean pool.
