“Woven Series” consists of a number of works which are photographic and digitally constructed motifs. Although several of these works have been exhibited in various exhibitions since 2005, the artist has been experimenting with the photomedia techniques evoked in these works since the beginning of her career as an exhibiting artist in 2004.. Virtually Woven – Livistona I is that of the Livistona decora (commonly known as the Weeping Cabbage Palm) native to open eucalypt forests and rainforests of Central Queensland, Australia. The work consists of a triptych motif of floating duraflex prints that explore and discuss natural forms and macroscopic detail, resulting from a combination of lens-based practice and digital manipulation and construction. Contradictive to their place of origin from natural sources, the brilliantly coloured and strongly textured flora, photographed on locations from National Parks on the East Coast of Australia, are applied in a contemporary and formal manner, yet they continue to relate to the natural realms through fundamental principals and elements, creating complex montages.. Virtually Woven – Alocasia I is that of the Conjevoi, Alocasia (commonly known as the Giant Elephant Ear) native to tropical rainforests and coastal environments of Northern Queensland, Australia. The work consists of a triptych motif of floating duraflex prints that explore and discuss natural forms and macroscopic detail, resulting from a combination of lens-based practice and digital manipulation and construction.
