Patterns in Nature, 2011

Collograph, Ink, charcoal & conte on BFK

75 x 83cm (framed)



Patterns that the natural world leaves behind, these patterns formed either by the struggle of survival or the change of seasons allows the viewer a glimpse into the way time affects the existence of things. 


In this work I have used a Collograph of a tree fern to allow a sense of the bracken that covers the ground, surrounding our gum trees in forests.  The limb I have depicted in Charcoal and ink has what is almost like a birth mark that stains its branch.  Working in these 2 mediums I hope to convey a sense of the diverging materials and patterns of the natural world.
