Additional Information

Leaves of green are fresh, soft and smooth.  Dried and preserved over time, they become sculptural, fragile and subtle in colour.  Hints of purple, red, blue and green tint the many shades of grey, creating layers of shadows and imperfect shapes.

The texture of this piece is in the foreground with the velvet like finish of the gouache in stark contrast to the fragile threads of cotton that illustrate the textures of these preserved gum leaves.  Created on 100% cotton paper, this artwork blurs the lines between painting and textiles as I blend machine and hand embroidery into the painting to create little shadows and texture.

It will need to be framed to be displayed and it is recommended that you have it float mounted to show it at its best. If you’d like assistance with this please send Art Lovers Australia an enquiry. Pricing starts at $300 and it will take an additional 3-4 weeks for delivery.

The artwork is signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
