Knots of rope offer a number of interpretations and usually feature as bird plumes or tail feathers. This composition started with the fluffy, soft, sea-worn rope that immediately suggested a hair-style adopted by a chap who is making the most of what’s left of his hair. He’s brushed it forward and hopes he looks rather dashing.

Leonard Cohen wrote a song about a man who's “style was obsolete”. This could be him! His body is worn and creaky, simply a log. His head, wrinkled and pitted, pale and tired. His crowning glory a dead giveaway. You could feel sorry for this piece, but admit it, he’s still up for it!
Sid Burnard portraitSid Burnard was born in Brighton in 1948. Introduced to the art of beachcombing by his Romany grandmother, Sid learnt to appreciate the beauty of nature from an early age. His time at Bristol Guild of Applied Arts gave him a profound understanding of visual arts and crafts and allowed him to put his personal vision into practice.

He is now based in Borth near Aberystwyth in Wales, where the flotsam and jetsam from the nearby sea is his only source of materials. Working with found objects, nothing is changed - simply introduced to one another. His driftwood pieces, usually birds, boats or mythical beasts, are full of his passion, integrity and wonderful humour.
