Medium: marri resin, damar varnish, gold leaf on canvass
I enjoy experimenting with materials in an unconventional way, producing different effects that may not otherwise occur using standard methods. Ideas supporting my explorations usually relate to the natural environment. For this series of work, I’ve explored the Marri resin which I’ve collected from various locations around Donnybrook region in the South West. I’ve created intriguing surfaces that draw the viewer in and give insight in to the “feel” and beauty of one of nature’s creations. This is a celebration of the Marri tree here in our South West.
