Curiosity T382 - Sid Dickens Memory Block
'Guiding me through the waters, unique as you are free my sweet friend where are you leading me?' These poetic words are detailed on the reverse of the block.
This block forms part of The Seven Seas Collection from 2016. It echoes Sid's memories of summers spent aboard his father's commercial fishing vessel, the sea and its mysteries have flowed naturally into Sid's art over the years. These nautical pieces are characterised by richly detailed organic textures, patterns, and the studies of animals great and small. Inspired by his discovery of blue and white porcelain shards on the beaches of The Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii), Sid included elements of blue and white to represent his sense of wonder about the origins of these small fragments of history. This nautical themed collection is a tribute to the vast magic and mystery found in our world's precious oceans and are an invitation to set sail, explore, and treasure the memories you find on the shore.
