"Bark"- 1 -18 July 2015 Trocadero Art Space


The word “bark “can mean to forcibly remove a protective barrier, leaving a soft and vulnerable underbelly exposed. To remove or damage this layer is to put the whole organism in jeopardy and most likely destroy it.


These collages are portraits of the “skin” of trees, made from the vulnerable insides, exposed and manipulated, of real trees. The works are made up of layers showing the different colours and textures of the bark of the different species. Each portrait represents a tree endemic to one of the many endangered biodiversity hotspots around the world.


Proceeds from any sales will be donated to Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia.

Press release for "Random":  The dictionary definition of the word "Random" is something along the lines of "made, done, happening or chosen without method or conscious decision". This exhibition showcases the work of eight very different artists who use found or repurposed objects to make their work. The show explores the different reasons behind the use of materials manufactured or produced for another purpose to create something new.
