Topography and geometry meet in these dream-like maps. Imaginary rivers and valleys cut through the strata of cold cast bronze. The absence of colour enhances the smooth chiselled finish to create a powerful homage to natural structures.

Standard size 99 x 70cm made to order with a 6-12 week lead time.

"The micro-structure of a scale from a butterfly wing. Moth and butterfly wings use pigments to make some colours but physical structures, that affect the behaviour of light itself, to make others. The holes are around 1 micrometre across, about the size of a bacterium. Scanning electron microscopy by Dr Bronwen Cribb, University of Queensland."
