Digital scan and digitally rendered mixed media artwork.
A digital scan of dehydrated water and milk kefir-grains among a variety of precious and semi-precious gems, quartz crystal, gold and silver jewellery and carob bean fruit [seeds]. Background is a natural fiber mat provided by a friend in Malaysia [Thanks Foon-Yen]. The scan was digitally rendered in Photoshop. The noun carat ; a unit of weight for precious gem stones [equals 200 milligrams], or the unit of measurement for the proportion of gold in an alloy, is a word derived from the Greek keration [fruit of the carob], via Arabic and Italian. Carob fruit were used as weights on precision scales because of the belief that each seed has a uniform weight. A 2006 study by Lindsay Turbull found this not to be the case. My personal observation took note of this as a youngster, and by simply putting the seed in my hand i could see that each seed was not precisely the same as the rest in appearance or by weight! But it is indeed nice to have this performed methodically correct and then publishing the results. Thanks Lindsay Turbull. May life bring enough turbulence to make it wonderfully enjoyable and interesting experience for you.
Mixed media Mail artwork 2003. Size : 16" x 11" [Work not for sale]
Above is a picture of a recent piece. This particular mixed media artwork is referred to as Mail Art. This is created from a letter received from a kind gentleman living in New York, who obtained water kefir-grains from me. The piece is rendered on the front cover of my kefir manual: "Kefir! A Probiotic Gem Cultured With Probiotic Jewels... Kefir Grains!"
Bark of the Australian native Paper Bark Gum Tree [Melaleuca spp], a Silk painted feather of White Dove [White Cloud] that our neighbour rescued and gave to me to care for [which I later released], various dry leaves, stamens of the flower of the "Passion Flower" vine [Passiflora incarnata]. Oil paints, assorted nylon materials, aluminium foil, sliced section of natural wild honeycomb. A post office stamped stamp. All materials were secured in place with pure beeswax, obtained from wild beehive, the bees of which swarmed and settled in a bin in our garden in Spring of 2003.
Mixed media artwork. Size : 66" x 40" [Work not for sale]
This particular piece is ongoing work, reflecting stages of my life, beginning soon after my daughter Angelica, passed on in 1985. This attempts to symbolize my totem, the King Brown snake and the Brolga bird. The King Brown is enveloped in observation, and the lady Brolga, strums her song on the threat board of a guitar, as she fertilizes the ground that she is part of. Her strumming right hand sews seeds to the ground, with each stroke to the guitar strings.
Red Fermented rice, dehydrated cultures of Kombucha SCOBY and Kefir grains [both milk-based and water-kefir grains], green and black mold spores [Aspergillus oryzae, and Rhizopus oligosporus], aluminium foil, a variety of insects that were found dead in our garden, flowers, portrait on paper, photo of our daughter Shedea-Nardu, cereal grains, sesame seeds various gem stones and a variety of legumes, oil and acrylic paint, pencil, texture colour and red sea coral on canvas.
