This abstract mixed media artwork features shades of red and blue that are layered with intricate patterns of red, pink, and gold. The piece was created using woven strips of recycled paper that were wrapped around a lightweight canvas and painted with acrylics, with additional pieces of gold paper added. The artwork references aerial images of mining in the West Australian desert, and the patterns and marks symbolize the impact on the land. Despite the destruction they depict, the patterns are paradoxically beautiful when viewed from above.
