The Art Board series sees artists jumping in the shaping bay with legendary surfboard shaper Bob McTavish. Once the board has been shaped, the artists are invited to unleash their creativity. The beauty of this project is seeing what each artist brings to the table and how they apply their art to the shape of the surfboard, which is more of a sculpture than a blank canvas.
This latest Art Board feature is with Byron Bay artist Jordana Henry. Jordana's minimal abstract gestures of rich pigment are the result of considered colour palettes and an emphasis on the process rather than the finished result. Her work often features the feminine form, so Bob suggested a classic 70s Gun, as it probably had the most elegant of outlines.
The wonderful thing about this project was seeing Bob and Jordi in each others creative spaces and sharing their process with each other.
This is their story.
