Birds of the Forest
Australia’s dry sclerophyll forests have always intrigued me by their beautiful, subtle colours, their distinctive aroma and the crackling that accompanies you when walking through them, especially on dry, hot days. The foliage of these prints comes from the foothills of kunanyi – Mount Wellington and the birds are those who visit my garden where I live on Bruny Island.
Prints can be purchased unframed for $135/$195 depending on print size from Wild Island Gallery, Salamanca, Hobart, Art at the Point, Dennes Point Bruny Island and Penguin Creek Gallery, Penguin. Professionally framed prints can be ordered. Each print on Canson Platine archival paper is one of an edition of 20 and is signed and numbered.
Prints from kunanyi – Mount Wellington, Tasmania
I took the images used in these prints during a recent trip that began on the Lenah Valley Track from The Springs. The patterns and colours in the trees struck me immediately and the birds, Black Currawongs (Strepera fuliginosa) are one of my favourites despite having to ward them off from stealing food in some of Tasmania’s National Parks. On ‘our’ mountain I have only watched them fly freely, moving with changing conditions, alerting us to wild weather with their distinctive call and helping to distribute seeds.
Prints from Tasmania’s NW Coast
Both of these prints have evolved from images taken on Tasmania’s NW coast between Penguin and Ulverstone. ‘The Close of Evening Light’ takes advantage of the soft colours of late afternoon, whilst ‘A Synergy of Souls’ focuses on morning reflections from the main street of Penguin in the rock pools of the shore. The coastal and inland areas of the NW are a wonderful place to explore.
