The base artwork image is of Salty One’s original sand artwork. 'Sunsets Lovers' represents the story of our precious memories taking in those beautiful Sunsets. With family, friends or simply by yourself, there's certainly something special about sunset gazing. Every Sunset is different and never the same. On a deeper level watching the sun go down for me has been a meditative process that for those few minutes you’re captivated by the raw and natural beauty and the incredible colors of Country which draw you in.

This sand artwork was created on the beautiful Boonwurrung Coastline of Rye(Beach Sixteen).

Gerard then hand-painted his designs over the top in a process that took over 40 hours to complete. In Gerard’s work he chose to tell this story.

The story you see painted is already in the land it is a part of the spirit and energy of our ancestors and creator spirits, I separate myself and my mind and open it to receive this energy. I remember my Uncle telling me that our energy and the energy of our ancestors and creator spirits are still here and all around us, they are imparted into the trees, rocks, water sand and soil and flow through the wind we breathe and if you truly look and listen you can see and hear them and feel their touch and guidance in the wind and water, as I looked into Lowey’s image there he was in all his brilliance Bunjil showing his spirit, flying across the sea and onto the land, his wings stretched out across the sand his head in the rock and tail feathers in the sea, such a special gift and I am just here to bring Bunjil’s Spirit onto the canvas, being a saltwater man the realm where Lowell creates his beautiful artworks in the sand resonates with me and I can feel the energy of the saltwater spirits.

Product information:

Float Framed Canvas

All prints will receive a Tasmanian Oak float frame also known as a tray frame, these frames allow the artwork to be inserted from the front, which means there is no glazing.

Each Salty One artwork print is part of a limited release, which means your purchase is unique and retains its authenticity and value as it will only ever be printed a certain number of times.  Each piece is issued with an edition number and artist’s signature that is provided on a certificate of authenticity with each piece. 

All artwork is printed locally at a Fine Art Printing Studio in Geelong, Victoria.  The artwork is printed using world-class materials on the finest substrates.

Salty One artwork is available on your choice of substrate: Cotton Rag or Canvas.

Fine Art Cotton Rag: Cotton rag is an archival quality printing medium. It is a type of paper that is made from cotton fibres rather than wood pulp and, as a result, is superior in both strength and durability.  Our cotton rag prints also use archival quality ink, meaning that your finished artwork will have vivid colour and depth, never fading and lasting a lifetime! As it is a paper, cotton rag prints must be framed behind glass.

Canvas: Canvas is a sturdy material that can be framed with or without glass. The canvas we use for our artwork is a high quality cotton/polyester blend canvas with a smooth woven pattern. The archival life of our canvas prints is 120-150 years! Our canvas prints are available framed or unframed. If you selected a framed artwork, it will be expertly stretched and then framed without glass and is able to be shipped Australia wide.

Whilst there is a series of set sizes for Salty One artworks, most can adapted and printed in custom size requests to suit your space. Custom Canvases are available unframed or framed. Please enquire here for custom size requests.
