("A Green Place")

by Jeff Austin

Tree ferns native to Australia are used in this rich, subtly-textured depiction of the dense rain forests of Australia's Northern Territory.

With its vast variety of plant, bird and animal life, the northern, sub-tropical region of the Northern Territory is hot, humid and a major contrast to the "red centre".

The rich, dark green textures of Binowee evoke the spirit of this often ignored region.
