The concertina book brings together two primary places—my home in Woonona on the south coast of NSW and my constant work with ancient Cyprus—through the representation of ancient objects as still life offerings to the panorama of Illawarra coast and escarpment. The text in Greek and English is a fragment from the Greek poet Sappho (c600 bc): ‘Love shook my heart, like a mountain wind that falls upon the oak trees’.
