Mixed Media: Australian gum with Kauri centre….Liquid Kauri gum
495W x 500H
Looking into the depths of texture and space, The Cave is created with a deliberate nonconformity of material: kauri gum, wood, and various paints and oils that echo the contradiction of the square paired with the circle. The floating square in the centre lifts itself as l must we all in life. Drawing the past into the present and inviting the pain (represented by fire) to become an uplifting personal insight into oneself. The Cave invites the viewer to remember the shadows as well as the light when seeking a source of strength.
