Earthly Bodies

Immersed in the rugged Tasmanian landscape, the work explores the raw textures and traces of human forms found in nature. The shifting materials of these enduring and untamed environments are tested through mixed media processes and explored through the merging of hand drawn charcoal drawings and digitally cropped photographs. To communicate the tactile terrain and sensual forms found within the landscape, I have used photo shop techniques to isolate the earthly figures from the environment. Trees and rock formations are conceived as “Earthly Bodies’ as they are the skin, lungs and bones of the earth.
