Ripples in the Open (toy scale)

Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison, 2019.

Inkjet print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm.
Edition of 10, unframed.

A landscape comprised entirely from images scanned from borrowed library books of RMIT University, originally created for Ripples in the Open, a 15m x 4m wall collage, exhibited at ArtSpace Realm (2018–19).

Using three paintings by Eugene von Guérard as a base on which to lay our pieces—one depicting the north-west vista of Milford Sound (1877–79) in New Zealand’s South Island and the others representing the sweeping prospects of Mt. Tambo from the Omeo Station, 1862 and Tower Hill (1855) in Victoria, Australia—we have constructed grass plains from wild mangoes, old man banksia (Banksia serrata), a bright call of Tasmanian Christmas bells (Blandfordia nobilis), and the underside of a giant lily pad (Victoria amazonica). We have built a mountain from the leaves of a mosaic fig tree (Ficus parcelli), and another with the heads of black orchids, with thanks to the botanical illustrations of Francis Bauer and Mary Anderson Grierson alongside the plump flowers within the still-life paintings of Willem van Aelst. Our landscape is both of this world and of another world.

This print is unframed (the photo of it framed is for scale) and it comes wrapped in a postal tube to ensure safe arrival to your door. If you live in the Melbourne metro area we are happy to delver it flat packed for the same postal cost. We are also happy to quote on framing.
