REK's gregarious nature is embodied in his recent collection of botanical abstract work. A stark departure from the ultra fine realistic technique he has become synonymous with - this body of work is painted in loose graffiti style using extra large brushes and iridescent gold acrylic pens on gallery quality archival paper.
The liquified paint trails emulate the much craved rain drops we long for in Australia and bring movement to the piece, which celebrates spring time and the hopeful dawning of a new chapter post covid lockdowns in Australia.
Celebrating Australia's magnificent native flora, REK explores the Sculptural nature of the iconic flowering gums with their spectacular red and pink blooms using varied multilayered techniques and a broad range of mediums to create this small scale work on paper.
