Acrylic, spray paint and hand embroidery on printmaking paper. This work comes unframed.
This artwork was created whilst being an Artist in residence at Falls Creek Australia in summer. It was inspired by the colours and patterns of the shrubs that flourish in summer once the snow has melted.
My Urban Garden and Landscape artworks are created using photos of gardens or landscapes as inspiration. I aim to capture and recreate the energy and vibrancy of these environments by using the following processes:
- Layer 1: Acrylic paint is used in an intuitive manner to communicate the natural vibrancy of the natural environment in these images. - Layer 2: Spray Paint is used to spray a geometric stencil grid over this natural environment stamping out the planned organised way we have developed our natural environments. - Layer 3: Hand embroidery is used to connect the natural and urban layers building connections through patterns that highlights the flaws and features of these environments.
