Gathering, is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.
For the people camping near White Beach at Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania, it takes only a few steps down a sandy path to reach the water. Campers go about their holiday activities independently in their own small groups. Just before sunset people start to trickle down to the shore to watch the sun setting over the choppy water in what becomes an unofficial and unplanned ritual in the appreciation of nature’s beauty. With this artwork, I aim to depict the unifying power that a shared appreciation of nature can bring out in people otherwise focussed on their own activities, concerns, and beliefs.
