the night twins

from 10.00

In a ghost forest two sets of twins  (one is Sarcophilus Harrisii) meet amid harsh and noxious cacti. A brush tail possum looks on from a nearby ghost gum.  This painting is the first in a new series about loss of wild spaces. 

Here in Tasmania there are remnants of the old growth forests, places where trees as old as 20 thousand years have their roots intertwined and interdependent. Despite their intrinsic, and incalculable value to the earth, animals, plant life and humans, despite their ability to provide rich economic growth to Tasmania through leather wood honey production and tourism; there are politically strong and highly motivated interests who seek to destroy these remnant wild spaces. 

The two twins represent our feelings about the environment; one sad and defeated, the other hopeful and ready to stand up. This painting shows how together we are strong enough to protect and defend our wild spaces, one battle at a time.

This is a print of the original watercolour painting on paper board by Claire and is available in three sizes; small (A5), medium (A4) and large (A3). Each print is made from a high resolution image of the original painting and the image is as big as will fit comfortably with a border for framing.

All our prints are on archival papers and inks designed not to fade for 100+ years and are signed by the artist.

We provide free postage within Australia and New Zealand. Our international postage cost is a flat $8AU. 

Thank you for your interest in our art!
