‘This is a vision of summertime, but not one you have seen before.

With this unique project, Saville Coble takes us on a personal journey that stretches from the ever changing chaos of city beaches to the peaceful and serene seaside towns of Victoria. From bustling urban shores to wild and rugged seascapes of the southern peninsula, it is a personal snapshot of a Victorian summer from many viewpoints.

While all summers are special in their own way, this one was different. This was the summer we needed after battling bushfires, floods and a pandemic. This last summer came at a time when everyone was exhausted and desperate to get back to the beach and bask in the sensuality of the season.

While some images radiate with the power of the baking sun casting deep summer shadows, others offer a wistful, lyrical interpretation of the coast and its many waterways, all of them transporting us back to the summer of 2022.

Summertime is a quiet reflection of the season and a time when Victoria emerged from the challenges and lockdowns of the previous years into the golden light of summer once again.’ – Tacit Art website
