Driftwood, mixed media assemblage.

Watching water fowl descending, coming to rest on water, has always fascinated me. Leaning back, legs outstretched, webbed-feet braced, one can almost detect a squeal of brakes.
The irregular shaped shard of clear plastic resembled ice.
Here was the chance to suggest such an event.
A mad mix of material, rubber-hose, electric flex, plastic and driftwood.
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.
