Rainforest Patterning : Seed Capsules ... cross-sections.
ORIGINAL WORK: 90 cm sq, acrylic and ink on linen on canvas.
LIMITED EDITION SIZE: 80 cm square.
This Rainforest seed-capsule cross-section painting was based on a theme from the 2010 Brisbane Botanic Gardens Residency which the artist was keen to further explore.
A June, 2012 trip to Cairns in the Wet Tropics of Far North Queensland to check out details for a September 2012 Residency allowed the artist to collect pods to bring back and draw as well as connect with the place and people at Cairns Botanic Gardens & Tanks Art Centre, home of the residency, as well as visit the Australian Tropical Herbarium and Daintree World Heritage National Park.
Painted with Acrylic and ink on collaged linen on a canvas stretched frame, making a feature of the collaged linen's torn edges, raw selvedges, etc was in a sense evocative of the earthy rainforest environment in which these Rainforest plants with their captivating colourful fruits and seed capsules are found.
