This creative work was originally published as:

Collis, A. (2015). The Garden Gate [Carbon on wax base]. Art Studios Gallery, Gosford, Australia.


As a member of the Central Coast Group of practicing artists, The Five Lands Trail, the artist was invited to take part in their group exhibition at the Art Studios Gallery, 391 Manns Street, North Gosford. NSW (October 14-25, 2015). The artist chose to contribute ‘The Garden Gate’ done as a research exercise into a technique that I have not seen done quite in this way before– i.e. the artist developed their own surface of carbon over wax-somewhat like scratchboard, but also used turps and erasers to create movement and half-tone areas.
