Inspiration/influences
Overall compositional imagery was inspired/influenced from nature drawing/painting studies direct from my local surrounding Far North Queensland tropical environment such as the capturing of:

  • undulating strata layers, rhythms and patterns from the telling timeline surfaces of palm tree trunks
  • Leaves – both actual and implied: of leaf fall, Native Hibiscus Tiliaceus (cottonwood) dried leaves plus others
  • Palm seeds
  • Butterflies and wings – both actual and implied: of the Cairns Birdwing and other
  • Seasonal atmospheric elements and Moon cycles
  • Earthy oxide palettes – of red iron, Indian red, yellow ochre, white, terra-verte, charcoal and blue – of soils, sands, sky, barks, plants, leaves etc.
  • Vessel shapes based on my own fibre receptacle forms
  • Symbology plays an overall important role in the total work.
