SHOWCASING THE WORKS OF THE COLLAGE GROUP OF ARTISTS
MY WORKS FOR THE EXHIBITION ARE ALL ENCAUSTIC.
Encaustic medium is beeswax & damar resin which is applied while heated to the substrate and reheated between layers of application. I use various mediums and techniques to get the Desired result.
The DREAMTIME story of how the RED TAILED COCKATOO got its red tail is featured.
Also featured are works my emotional response to the effect of drought and fire.
Come and meet the ARTISTS at the opening of the exhibition.

SIZE 93cm x 94cm
Artist MARILYN BARRINGTON $2900.
In the dreamtime, Ngo-lak the Carnaby's Cockatoo was defending Dwert the Dingo who was attacking Djiti Djiti the Willy Wag Tail. Mulal the Swamp hen took a reed and struck Ngo-lak across the back who spread his tail in defence. Mulal threw red sap from the reed at Ngo-lak's tail staining it red. Ngo-lak became so hoarse screaming his cry "Karrak" not the Carnaby's call "Wola" that he became Karrak the Red Tailed Cockatoo.
