Item Description

Caret Down Primary

Influenced by the abstract minimalist compositions of traditional Japanese & Chinese ink paintings where blank spaces 'yohaku' are an integral part of the composition and a signifier of zen 'nothingness' or 'mu'. The abstract shapes and tones of the composition were my first consideration. Linear lines were kept simple, cross contouring the forms and textures of my subjects..

The rich copperish hue that I could only see in my minds eye my minds eye at first, was finally achieved after a few sample tests. A strong mixture of raw umber & light red watercolour got the result desired.

The mangrove tree loosely referenced a few life sketches I had done of them, a few years back on a trip to a desolate seaside haunt of many photographers, where they grew, old and twisting, their roots exposed, shooting out of the salty muddy waters beneath, gnarled, petrified reminders of life on a desolate seascape..
