The Bart Art framed pieces show contemporary abstract designs and items using tree bark e.g. different gum trees – stringy bark, blue gum bark, paper bark and gum leaves etc, all being hand sourced from the landscape around the local environment in the Western Region of Victoria. Framed cotton pieces are also included in the Album.
To create the Bark Art, different pieces of bark are sourced and then: colour matched; cut into different sizes and shapes; arranged into contemporary designs or patterns; each piece is glued onto art paper to form the design; and finally the work is framed. The framed Cotton pieces use the same process as above which ensures that each piece is individual and unique.
