John Parkes

John Parkes currently has a retrospective exhibition at Vasse Felix in the Margaret River wine region.  “John Parkes: a survey in the company of friends”. 20 years of John’s work including pieces from Nalda Searles, Eveline Kotai, Elsje Van Keppel and others. It was a great excuse to have a weekend away…and a wonderful exhibition to see.  We stayed in Busselton and I dragged the kids out late on a windy afternoon to walk the length of the jetty.

I’ve walked this jetty many times before, this is the first time I have noticed that at some point the railway track for the tourist train along the jetty has been moved 1m or so to the right.  Consequently there are these metal plates dotted along the jetty…little artworks in themselves…

It was Fathers Day weekend, we discovered Bunker Bay, had a lovely late lunch at the cafe and saw a whale and her calf playing in the bay…a lovely day.
