"Reception of the Land"
"Reception of the Land" Mixed Media and Basket. The concept for this series of work came from a strong connection I feel for the land . Each mixed media piece in the exhibition was an aerial landscape of a different aspect of place. I then created a basket which was a sculpturall connection to this place. Some baskets even had incorporated materials from the location painted. This Mixed Media piece and basket explored people's interaction with the Australian landscape. Although it is often a destructive interaction, the land just keeps receiving and accomodating people's structures and creations.
The Basket contains plant fibres and materials collected from builder's skips in a new subdivision near my home. ( Basket For sale: $80)
