Artist Statement

This is a work with a touch of renaissance...a take on Tasmania's French connection here in Cygnet Tasmania.

In 1793, the French explorer Bruni D’Entrecasteaux sailed into the Huon River and named the bay the Port des Cygnes Noir (the Port of Black Swans) because there were large number of swans in the river. This name was officially changed to Lovett but in 1915 it became Cygnet.
