Works On Paper
Finalist

Paper carving, 200 sheets Envirocare paper, 88x64cm

Hand-carved from a tablet of paper, Rural Backyard depicts a collection of small birds found in the artist's rural garden just outside of Melbourne. Contrary to traditional natural history documentation this framed exhibit is bleached of colour and reveals only the contoured impressions (their absence) as a guide to define the specimens.
