This work pays homage to the enduring remnant Mallee Box Woodland that emerges from Park 23, also known as Wirrarninthi (to become wirra) west side of the Adelaide Park Lands. To create this work, a combination of lithographic & monoprinting plates were drawn in-situ using fallen natural elements from the park as mark making tools; a means of capturing a sense of place. The plates then later translated through print onto paper, handcoloured with homemade ink from foraged redgum bark.

An endemic/urban landscape dichotomy is presented in diptych format; a reference to Park 23’s half park/half cemetary division. The repetition of abstract elemental marks echo from one realm to another.
