Boabs in winter
This work is inspired by the iconic bottle-shaped trunk of the boab tree found mostly in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The boab is a deciduous tree that loses its leaves and goes into dormancy during the winter months. This iconic tree can live for hundreds of years. I regard the unique and exquisite nature of the Australian boab as a metaphor for endurance and life.
Can be hung as a standalone work or combined with other works from the red earth series as a diptych, triptych, quadriptych, or polyptych.
