Artist's description:

A painting about the pleasures of isolation.
At surface level, ‘The wader’ seems to depict an idyllic scene. Cradled by an untouched and fertile nature, a man takes a breather from life and reality. The darkness of the surroundings is illuminated by light-heartedness.
If one looks below the surface however, a more complex little world is revealed. The man stands awkwardly, his swimming goggles are ill-fitting. This provides some humour but yet suggests he is someone who is ill-at-ease with both the setting and himself. The rocks in the background are moulded and eroded by the unceasing force of the water. The plant-life, better adapted to desert climates, find themselves in an unlikely environment. Their inclusion lends some fantasy to the piece and possibly hints that the the location is a construct of the bather’s mind.
