DESCRIPTION

Continuing and extending my series of work with multiple layers of stencils, in this work I am trying to create an image of an enchanted glade. I have made stencils of foliage and wildflowers, which have been layered with multiple layers of paint. I have used the technique of negative painting to suggest a delicate and complex pattern of tree branches. The butterflies are all Australian species. I have titled the work 'Diversity', suggesting that the diversity found in nature is a source of wonder and enjoyment, and that diversity in our society should also be respected and celebrated.
