[Extract] Julie Gough's Intertidal II commences with a similarly lyrical abstraction from nature. The crackled horizontal layers in her paintings suggests a succession of high water marks left by the tide. Rhythms of tone and colour suggests the ebb and flow of the tide, the cyclical push and pull of the ocean. There's a comforting certainty to those rhythms. But Gough has marked the point between tides, a point where the precise level of the ocean and the precise limit of the shoreline is unstable, only momentarily found between movements. This sense of momentary pause and gentle uncertainty is a timely reminder to all residents of the city of the fragility of our experience.
