This work is created using applique and surface stitchery and framed in a Tasmanian Oak box frame by Fogelbergs Conservation Framers. I was inspired to zoom into the landscape and play with the ideas of the circle in the square. Carl Jung believed that the circle in the square represented transformation and enlightenment. This particular work was created while I was visiting Leeton NSW in January at the height of the bushfire crisis. I was imaging the new growth that would eventually come in the forest after the fires had subsided. And how sometimes we need to experience a death in order to be reborn.
