Rhapsody - Original Artwork

Rhapsody - Original Artwork

Rhapsody is inspired by the Melbourne Summer of 2021 that never was. I created this artwork over a number of dreary Summer days in Melbourne, longing for the beautiful warmth and life that comes with a usual Australian Summer. In this piece is hope that the Summer of 2022 can be without fire and without flood - a reprieve from the extremes that are becoming all but commonplace now.
Rhapsody was created over a number of days using layers of alcohol inks on Yupo paper. The chosen colours reflect the life and beauty of foliage and fauna on an early Summer's walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens. The final piece is embellished with gold leaf, representing the harsh Summer sun glinting off of Melbourne skyscrapers which overlook the gardens.
This piece comes unframed, unless otherwise organised. If you would like framing organised for you, leave a message in the Notes section at checkout and I will be in contact to talk you through your options. Either that or feel free to contact us at shakethetreeart@gmail.com with your query.

Resined products

We take the utmost care to ensure that your resined artwork is coated in a beautiful clear gloss coat every time. However, due to dust and particles in the environment, and changes in temperature over the extended (>24 hr) curing time of the resin, there are sometimes small imperfections within the resin, but which do not impose on the overall look of the artwork. This is simply a product of the hand-crafted nature of the artworks we produce. Please ensure you understand this prior to purchasing a resined art piece as we will not accept returns on this basis.
