Ross Watson's recent artworks feature Olympic gold swimmer, Grant Hackett. Hackett holds the 1500 meter freestyle world record, and is being keenly watched during the 2008 Bejing Olympics. Watson has depicted him as if on the starting blocks, and poised to dive. A jet fighter aircraft sits sleekly on the beach behind him, creating a metaphor for speed and a formidable opponent.
