Our relationship with natural phenomena in Australia started 40,000 years ago with the original human inhabitants and the Dreamtime. White Australians then overcame terrifying obstacles to arrive by ship over 200 years ago. To present day, Australians still face these same challenges from wild seas and weather, to bushfires, to a harsh, hot desert. This series is my interpretation of this phenomena and our place in it.
For earlier colonists, Bass Strait was a stretch of ocean with unpredictable weather and at times quite treacherous.
To create this series, I start by either creating a painting, sculpture or a photograph. The photograph I will either paint over the top of, or cut pieces from. I then photograph this object using various lighting and filtration techniques to render the final image.
Specifications: Artwork is made using only top quality archival inks. Printed on european-made top quality pure cotton paper‚ and primed with a surface protection coating. The final image has a matte finish which accentuates the rich colours. Photo does no justice to the artwork‚ very impressive in person.
Final work is ready to hang on a hardwood backing, unframed. Framing is available.
The final work is signed and also comes with the certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
Please allow up to 3 weeks to receive your hand made, ready to hang artwork.
