The beginning of a new project "Survivors",  plants that have survived Mass Extinction. Not as detailed botanical illustration, more as a study of shape and form, a cross between a close up landscape and perhaps a still life. Expect Mixed media

The Last Pipi Harvest at Venus Bay
Mixed Media on Canvas
102 by 102cm
This is a story of anthropogenic extinction, written into future stone. The ochre coloured sandstone was at one time a thriving beach, brimming with life and specifically a prolific population of Donax Deltiodes, also known as Pipis or Surf clams. However the Pipis were so yummy and they were harvested in such numbers that fewer and fewer shells reached maturity each year. Then suddenly in one season, the entire population failed to reproduce. Worse the rich food chain of the beautiful beach collapsed, with their demise, and the once thriving beach became a pale version of itself. Only a few brave worm burrows could be found. Then all signs of life disappeared.

This story need not come true.

An earlier work I have given a place in the tales of things. (An experiment in giving objects their own net presence)

The Unconformity is a smaller set of created rock panels/paintings, telling an important geological story. The story is 10 million plus years into the future and well after sea level rise engulfs red bluff.

After a lot of searching, for a personal on-line gallery space, which I had begun referring to as my cloud gallery (aka the impossible dream) , I decided there was not really anything suitable so I ended up creating my own to display my current artworks

Nothing fancy yet, but at least its out there.

Not My Fault
Rock Panel Mixed Media,
48 by 20cm
Norm Hanson, 2011

This is a whimsy like Magritte’s pipe. It is not a fault but a representation of a fault, or is it something too often said?

fault, (folt) n 1. a defect, imperfection, a flaw. 2. Culpability, 3. (geology) a fracture or fracture zone along which there has been displacement of the sides relative to each other..

In a geological sense it is a fault, but it is also always handy to have something to take the blame.

Original Art and Photography, from cave paintings to photoimpressions
Introduction
Whilst my works might look like a very divergent set of photographic, sculptural and painted works, they do follow the themes and methods I have been investigating over many years.

Beginning with the simple photographic records (the traditional 10” by 8”s), through to large format multi-image panoramas that were photographed as a series of overlapping images and stitched together on a computer later. My works also cover multi-paneled images, photo impressions and collages. The created rock panels are also typical of my work and tell authentically geological stories.

This landing place in Google+ is for my physical works, rather than the many Virtual items shared in flicker and blogger
