Photography by John Lee
I am a mixed media artist, working with, and making paper as a core medium. Interested in exploiting its surface qualities as an integral part of my work.
Colour of Hill End is a work in progress, mapping the landscape with the natural pigments of the plants collected there.
The 3 scrolls are experimental drawings, a continuous drawing on 16 metres or 7 metres scroll. I started my drawings on sketch books but the best way to communicate my idea, and how I felt in front of the landscape, was to draw in a continuous line, similar to walking, wandering along the fences and along the rivers.
The grass tree is one of my favourite Australian native plants. The plant looks like it could be dismantled like pieces of a puzzle. I drew those pieces and overlapped them to create an abstracted mapping of the landscape.
