Additional Information

Forest Bather – Wurundjeri is an original painting by Jacqueline Christians
This series is about immersion, with a figure almost hidden in the foliage, sitting in relaxed postures, but deliberately looking away from the viewer. She relishes those private days, to hide, reconnect and find her centre, retracting into the forest. This one references my local rainforest, ferns and blues and greens imbue relaxing energy to the immersed figure.
The term Shinrin-yoku was coined by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture  in 1982, and can be defined as making contact with and taking in the atmosphere of the forest.
For me it is a recreational trip to the forest for relaxation and well-being; forest bathing.
This work is a foray into figurative landscape, a series I started in 2021 lockdown era, with more time to explore and muse on my local forest (sans-tourists). Refreshing myself from the routines of work and an overly digital life, I needed to find that connection to nature, to breathe the life back into my spirit.
I really enjoy landscape painting as I can be as abstract and loose as I want, using a quick succession of marks to build up canopies, stencilling texture with natural foliage over vibrant washes of colour to express the tone of each place. 
My work uses colour to express emotion as much as the subject is about experience of place. I call myself a forest fauvist, an artist who continues to lose and find herself in her art and in nature.
This work uses acrylic paint on wood birch panel.
satin UV varnish sealer.
Ready to hang with D rings and rear wire.
