This work is from my most recent 'red earth' series created during 2022. The seam of patterns in this work are inspired by the distinctive reddish-brown and white banded sedimentary zebra rock found in Western Australia. It is believed that seams of the rock (some of which are found across several kilometres) were formed around 650 million years ago. The rock has to be seen to be believed since, at first glance, it appears to be hand-painted. The lines and circles, cracks, dots, dashes and squiggles, stripes and spirals, tessellations and meanders featured in this and my other artworks have all been informed by and represent abstract interpretation of the many unique shapes and patterns of the land observed in the Australian outback over the years. I regard the unique and exquisite landmarks of the Australian outback as metaphors 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.
