The Sleeping Forest - Original Artwork 2022


The story behind the artwork

Enter into a hypnotic world of truth and paradox, where darkness and light confuse the senses and confound the spirit. A deep cobalt blue permeates this fantastical panorama, turning tawny trucks a petrol blue, reflected in the babbling stream. From within the inky depths, a tribe of incongruous animals feel free to weave their way through the timeless landscape, for this forest of enchantment is their sanctuary, somewhere to rest and to roam within the lushness of nature. Towering fronds display giant flowerheads, their hues mirrored in the fluttering wings of impatient butterflies; a kaleidoscope of colour that defies the darkened forest within. Spot a bejewelled elephant and majestic peacock, a timid kangaroo and pair of chameleon, land creatures from the continents of the world living together in harmony. And in honour of Eyvind Earle’s dream-like Disney tableaux, an oceanic kraken can here be seen emerging from depths of the forest, his arrival heralded by an ethereal pair of hammerhead sharks, metamorphosed into half bird, half fish, inviting a particular magic into this imagined scene.
