Metallic Rock

. . . Metallic Rock was inspired by the bush ground beneath my feet. Layered with gum leaves of golden and blush, dotted with petite pieces of granite and round river rocks all held by the sandy earth. At a certain angle and under a particular light there’s a shimmer and a sparkle of patterned metallic inks . . .
