EDIT: I’m obviously terrible at being subtle. But my Mum died a few years ago. This was a comment on death being indiscriminate. She was an extremely positive, very spiritual, determined person. And could not comprehend something like this happening to her. I’ve posted it at the moment because the misinformation and ableism and toxic positivity around health and covid is reminding me of this terrible time. I apologise if you’ve thought she just passed. I understand that this is a difficult time. But wanted to say as gently as I could, death does not discriminate. ...

Sunday creek road, sun down, on our Sunday, which is Wednesday. Return from visiting forest friends, side of road cup of tea. 🌿💚✨🌈 🌞💓With @rossannels #conondalenationalpark #kabikabicountry #forestsunset #photoid ID: sunset in subtropical forest, large forest trees and vines silhouette the purples, oranges, pinks and yellows of sunset, a road heads back into the forest. ...

Down at the bottom of the mountain. This side was a goat farm when I was a kid. Thankfully it was saved as a reserve not long ago. They wanted to concrete the waterfall and put in units. Unbelievable. BushCare has been doing some wonderful work in past few years. It’s a richly wondrous and sacred place. I learn so much just sitting with it. I’m always amazed how full the world is even in my slow slow slow pace. Kabi Kabi Country.

Done x 2 grateful ❤️ ...

Used to be like this on most beachfronts when I was a kid. Now there’s houses, or canals. I had an olfactory hallucination of coconut oil, (pretend 70’s sunscreen), that’s how similar it was. ...

A place to speak with your fears, it’s ok to be scared. 💚🖤🌿 #sensorimotordrawing #landscapemontage #photomontage #drawing #overlays #densityofplace I will try to ID this pic. I may fail. But will give it a go!!!
ID: Soma sensory automatic dual handed drawing (daily practice) overlaying transparent landscape photographs, of creeks, forests, waterfalls, and rocks, these are also overlaid, these images are in black and white. One triangle shape of a rock is in colour and floating within the image. It is a bit like a twin of one of the other rock images in the overlaid black and white imagery. Some of the overlaid images are so heavily layered they form borders where they meet, because of the density of the imagery. There are many abstract patterns within the images because of the overlays.

The bright blue wall, light and stone, the netherworld of Ninderry. ...

And finally this. At the top of Ninderry waterfall, we managed to only travel about a 2km radius from home, but move through many worlds. These rock patterns I’ve see also at Bunya Mountains waterfalls. All the places knowing each other. 💚💚💚 ...

Patterns, layers, interwoven, interdependence, just prior to entropic collapse, the one with the little mushroom was not far from becoming soil, now a mummification of decomposing layers. Mycelium threads, light mauve fungi growing through barks, mistletoe stars, tree rays and rings, all the patterns converging, ants sometimes walk out, sometimes spiders, once some termites. These mistletoe haustoria keystones are works for part of a show I’m slowly putting together for Elevator Ari in Lismore early next year. 💛🌞 ...

Drawing with the dark, and my breath a wobbly tripod. Bird sounds move my pen. Stars glow in the cold subtropical creek. #photomontage #sensorimotordrawing #dualhandeddrawing #drawing #overlays ...

Lovely merging of was and is, the patterns of in between, a leaf becoming fungi. ✨🌿 ...

Dual handled sensorimotor drawing. I do this daily. Two hands, both working independently and in union, both with different ways in the world, but working together to perceive, act, move through, stay with. I learn so much just noticing my bihaptic bipedalism and it’s affects on my perception. Makes me wonder about the perception of cephalopods, and then I need a lie down. Scanning some notepads. #dualhandeddrawing #sensorimotordrawing #bihapticperception #hapticperception #cephlapods #multihaptic #multipedialism #octopedal ...
