Pigment and found ochre with binder on linen (2013)
102 x 76 cm
Very striking, especially when juxtapositioned with the two paintings around it. ‘Desert Awakening’ and ‘Desert River’ have a more soothing palette with pale greens, yellows and blues, which potray the gentle life-affirming qualities of water. ‘Ecological Sponge’ paints as arresting, almost primordid picture with its dark ochres, accented with a single stripe of crimson, at times evoking the unforgiving terrain of the prehistoric age or the cells within the human body.
