Back Reef Medium Cylindrical Vase


“Visiting the Great Barrier Reef was one of the visual highlights of my life. In an attempt to capture and express some of the delights of that experience, I developed my series Reef.

I wanted to convey an abstracted scene of towering rocks, seaweed and teeming colourful fish. It was a forgotten experimental piece which sparked the idea for Black Reef.

I hope this series will continue to be a reminder that our ailing reefs are endangered and in need of care." - Peter Layton
