Medium: Gouache painting. Support: 300 Arches rag paper. Original artwork size: H.19.4 x W.99 cm. Front side of a concertina format artist book (unique state), shown in flat detail.
About: Initial photographic reference imagery was taken from the landscape near Kuranda, on the Tablelands of Far North Queensland.
I was inspired by the distinct difference that Eucalyptus tree species grow on the higher plateau of the Tablelands and which are rarely seen along the FNQ coastal land where the Reef/Sea meets the Rainforest.
The first work in a series of concertina artist books for Tablelands, Perimeters and Parameters, a group exhibition by 15 Kuranda Arts Cooperative Ltd members, held at the Tableland Regional Gallery, Atherton, Far North Queensland, Australia, during month of Feb 5 – 28, 2010.
