This is an Exhibition of established & emerging artists who reside in the 2800 postcode.The exhibition is at the Orange Regional Gallery from Friday4th March until 28th March 2016. Opening of Exhibition by the Mayor of Orange,Cr.John Davis OAM. “SCRIBBLY GUMS”… an Ancient dialect written in the trees, painted in acrylic is 92x92cms (Unframed).
The iconic “scribbles” on the smooth grey/white trunks of these Australian gum trees have fascinated & intrigued me,particularly as an artist.
These “scribbles”seem like an ancient dialect written in the trees.The markings are supposedly formed by a moth, on the trunks…..are they telling us their lifes story????It makes for great mark making.My intention is to do a series of works based on these markings…both in my painting & in my printmaking.
