About this object
Acrylic on paper featuring a dark and light teal coloured surf scene with waves. Two figures are in a rowing boat and in the water are a swimmer and a lifeguard with a red cap.

The title Dumpers is an example of the artist's use of then contemporary surf language in the naming of her fabrics. This particular work is said to be the designer's homage to the skill of Bondi lifesavers.
