The essence of the Australian bush is something very special. The richness of the precious metals used in the foiling of the gum leaves reflects the richness of the Australian Bush. There is beauty in the damaged and deteriorating leaves. I want to invoke the viewer to feel transported to the bush, and feel the heat, smell the eucalyptus trees, hear the insects and the birds calling. The essence of being Australian is very much connected to the Bush, and therefore the simple Gum leaf tugs at the heart of what makes us feel at home.
Lovely work and connection to the theme. Lyrical. Use of metals reflects the preciousness of the bush.
