Looking for a gum tree

Significance of the artwork:

This artwork shows us how far we can reach when we need it.

It also speaks about the need to preserve nature, our environment.

Description:

Koalas, whose Latin name means ash-color bear with bag, are one of the most charismatic Australian icons. To most of the people, they arouse feelings of tenderness. However, they are considered a vulnerable species throughout Australia, due to the loss of ecosystem and diseases. Every time they find more difficulties to find food. I wish we could help the recovery of this species in other forests outside Australia, but its autochthonous diet based on eucalyptus leaves limits our options.

Editions 

Media selection (paper finish)

Satin – artist’s recommendation (Baryta & Platine)

For this artwork, the artist prefers a satin finish paper: Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310 gsm (Palace Edition) and Baryta Photographique 310 gsm (rest of editions), which provide a photo-realistic appearance, with deeper blacks and higher contrast than a matte paper

Matte – optionally (Edition Etching)

Looking for a gum tree looks beautiful both in a satin and a matte paper. A matte finish paper will provide a more pictorial look to this artwork. Although for this image this paper finish is not the artist’s preferred option, the appearance of this artwork using a matte paper is also undoubtedly good. If you are looking for a softer and more poetical look, or you are not very fan of satin papers, then go for this option. We will use Canson Infinity Edition Etching Rag 310 gsm, a slightly textured matte paper.
