Mixed Media on Cradled Aquabord
10" x 8"
Part of my TeaScape series that layers landscape imagery over salvaged tea packaging. The landscape and tea correlate in a dissonant way. In this piece, there is a distinction of space between the placement of the tea as a symbolic home, offering protection from devastation - the suggestion of fire. This was created during the fires of Australia, but the images seem universal to our situation now.
Aquabord is a wood panel treated with an absorbent ground that permits the use of watercolor and water media. This piece incorporates watersoluble graphite (pencil that disolves with water) and watersoluble crayon.
