This abstract composition of painted found-objects form an image denoting the intersection of our Australian nature and flora (sky, water, dirt, ochres, eucalypts) that surround our ancestral indigenous presence. Inter-relationally, the acrylic paint is our modern media reality adhered to surfaces that are worn and aged by specifically Australian weather.
