Description

Drawing on the natural beauty that surrounds me in the Byron Bay hinterland, I feel this piece captures the elements I see and reject on daily during my contemplations; like the movement of clouds in the sky, the wind blowing the leaves in trees, and the grasses swaying tall on the earth.

One of the great influences on my work is the book 'Tantra Song' by Franck Andre Jamme, who first exhibited a small selection of Indian sacred works on paper in Paris in 1994. These works were originally produced by Tantric families from Rajasthan for meditation and visualisation where they are left unframed and simply pinned to the walls, usually in a special or "sacred" place in the house. Eventually the piece is discarded or replaced with a new artwork. There is a lovely quality of non-attachment and impermanence to this story which resonates with me.

With this in mind I have chosen to leave the artwork unframed. I also feel it helps the artwork be more affordable to purchase. The work is on Canson 290 gsm, weighty, mould resistant, professional art paper. It comes with four clear plastic tabs attached in the corners to pin the artwork (like a poster) to plasterboard walls. If you do decide to frame it the tabs can simply be cut off, leaving no extra thickness or mark on the paper for framing.

If you are interested in framing this artwork please contact Bluethumb to help you find a recommended framer in your area. I feel this piece would look beautiful in the simplicity of a natural light timber frame.
