Winter Show at Everard Read Cape Town
An abstract painting inspired by time working in the Tsitsikamma forest where Arabella drew and printed and took silicone moulds of the bark of trees. This painting is inspired by the patterns created in the bark of the Oteniqua Yellowwood Tree. The aim of the abstraction is to take the viewer directly to the face of nature without being conscious of exactly what is in front of them. To illicit a visceral experience which like the forrest itself captivates and entrances.
