Fissure

Works On Paper

Finalist

Eco-dyed paper, pigment, 49cm x 76cm
 
I am drawn to marks left on the landscape through time — to natural surfaces shaped by the elements. I include materials collected from the environment in my work. In Fissure, papers have been bundled with eucalyptus leaves and boiled for several hours to coax colour and texture onto the surface.
