Seeking Nectar – Triptych

Paintings

Finalist

Oil on canvas, 120x180cm

Embedded in the scarred bark of living ancient eucalypt trees are intricate marks that translate centuries of historical change. Fragments of this bark have been assembled to create a surreal ‘landscape’ that captures the ancient rhythms of Australia’s landscape, animated by a simple narrative of a honeyeater seeking nectar.
