76x102cm (30"x40"), 2019
The Basket Weavers is a painting I made from the memory of watching the women members of a fishing village in Borneo as they deftly wove baskets from strips of palm leaf. I lived in Borneo for 4 years with my family and travelled throughout Asia, seeing villagers in Vietnam, Cambodia, Brunei and Malaysia making functional and beautiful items for daily household use.
The Basket Weavers is painted on yupo paper which is made from recycled plastics and promotes the translucency of the layers. Yupo is a lightweight paper that ships brilliantly in a tube. This painting is sealed with a UV varnish for protection. I am happy to arrange professional framing, feel free to ask.
