Signed on the back.

Frame not included

This piece alludes to the bark on eucalyptus tree trunks - exploring the intertwined relationships between the naturally occurring chemical and insectivorous processes. The art process begins with curling up the copper sheet to create a three dimensional form. Then, I implement markings and holes on the surface that reciprocate through the furled layers. Then it is partly dipped in a ‘chemical bath' before opening the piece out to a flat two-dimensional plane for observation.

Transparency oils have been applied to seal in the patina.

A sheet of patinated copper covered in oil paint and wax. The patina shapes the form of a tree trunk, with impressions or depressions created throughout its length by both large and small drill holes. The connected small holes describe the Scribbly Gum moth larvae feeding trails.A sheet of patinated copper covered in oil and wax.
