Artist's description:

A Japanese shibori inspired artwork in blue patterns created using a combination of photographic collage and images of security envelope lining.

This print is produced on acid-free paper, a highly patterned work is based around a traditional patchwork pattern called hovering hawks in the style of blue shibori work. The starting point is a mix of sunrise shots taken in Australia's remote Kakadu national park. They form a patchwork pattern base which is then overlaid with images of security envelope lining to give the piece the unique feeling of a Japanese tie dye work - shibori.

About my work:
These highly patterned works explore the way we physically view our environment and the idea that not everyone sees things in the same way. I realised in my early twenties that the fine veil of dancing, colourful dots I see over everything and had grown up with, is a view of the world not perceived by everyone. This is my experience I want to share; perhaps you see something similar or maybe it looks alien and unfamiliar. But no matter how we see the world, pattern exists all around us both man-made and naturally occurring; from the beauty and complexity of fractals in nature to the printed fabric of your clothing. Even on the calmest day and in the simplest of environments, our surroundings that may at first seem static and plain; are full of movement and decoration.
