The Black Glossy and the Red Tailed Cockatoos

Works on Paper

Finalist

Etching

120 x 110cm

The Cockatoos are drawn within their coastal lands of Kangaroo Island. The Sheoaks with their undergrowth extend to the high shore line. Traces of seacharts and plant lists acknowledge our presence. The Cockies fly with images of vegetation on their wings, a biological memory of their origins. This is a limited edition, multiple plate etching with chine collé.
