Birds on boards

by Linda Franklin, August 13, 2019

Under The Floorboards
Group exhibition, Art Gallery of Ballarat, 2013
Free-standing diptych painting on recycled floor-boards, painted on both sides, totalling a length of 8 metres x 2 metres high.

The four panels reference the four season’s – SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER.
Each season includes bird and plant life from Lake Wendouree, Ballarat as a metaphor for the seasons of human experience that move through the wintery dark-night-of-the-soul, to the new dawn of spring.

Commissioned by Uniting Care. Sold at auction for $5000, as fundraising for Uniting Care at Black Tie charity event held at the Mercure Convention Centre, Ballarat.
