The Struggles of Banksia Montana 2

This artwork has been created by firstly ‘rusting’ the paper to create a background indicative of an Australian landscape caught in a bushfire. It is overlaid with a linocut image of the burnt remnants of a Banksia Montana, a critically endangered plant from the Stirling Ranges in south west Western Australia. It has then been further rendered in coloured pencil to bring out the tree shapes that have been created as part of the rusting process. The cockatoos – who are searching for a blue patch of sky to escape to – have been created with a solvent transfer. While considered an original ‘print’, it is a one of a kind mixed media artwork on thick, textured, handmade paper.
