• K Rees Medley

Additional Information

One off, hand inked and printed Banksia Robur leaves overlaid with pen drawings of a bottlebrush, grevillea and the ring in imposter, Leucadendron flowers, generally considered native to Australia to the uninitiated they actually originate in South Africa.

A fun combination of my fascination with our extraordinary Australian native plants combing print and drawing. This is the result of how a planned day at the print studio went in an entirely different direction after parking next to a Banksia roadside tree. What was interesting in the printing process was the way in which the different stages of leaf maturity were affected by the inking and finished print. It was a bit of a goldilocks story – the newest softest leaves soaked up too much ink and were quite delicate to work with – wrapping round the roller threatening to tear, the oldest leaves were too hardened to give a good result going through the press whilst of course the semi hardened leaves were just right.
