Heaven and Earth, 2018
75 x 75cm (includes frame)
Heaven and earth is designed to be a repeated image for fabric. As an art piece the image at MAC depicts the earth in the centre enclosing the elements of water. The “tree of life” is from my garden and the animal, my dog (gone to heaven) The black wings represent heaven. All of the elements are connected by the serpent like ropes and tied together with the love knot. The flower like image is the lotus. A symbol of spirituality, of human beings connection to the earth and their ability to rise above animal nature. The Lino print is printed by hand using a barren (a hand held device) using Kozo paper much like rice paper, translucent and fabric-like. I also hand-colour this image.
