I have lived my whole life in sight of the river, around which lives a spirit: the old man of the river. The banksia is a symbol of this spirit, gnarled and bearded. This also describes my father – as old as men get – who walks and wades in the rocky mountain rivers. Through my chosen media I have attempted to explore the character of these old men.
