58cm x 48cm, Acrylic on canvas
Float-Framed in Victorian Ash
Painted Dec 2016, Melbourne
Hokkaido was painted after a trip to the place of the same name in Japan. I'm inspired by the traditional arts of Japan, as well as it's natural beauty and Japan's culture of sensitivity and connection to the natural world.
It is painted whilst employing nature (such as gravity and viscosity) to mimic nature.
