Sitting out the back is a term surfers use for waiting for the next set. This title has multiple references including to recycled produced timbers and olive oil tins from local supplier Kakulas Sister. The title is about a way of thinking and being in the world. As ideas change, the ocean moves at will with the next set break always in a moment of becoming. There is a simplicity in the moves made with these artworks, from acknowledging the life of a tree to deeper layers of geomorphology and history.
