Ruby Bovill explores a connection with nature through painting. Tracks is inspired by the rainforests of Australia. These paintings aim to provide a sense of walking through the rainforest, along a bush track or creek.
In this collection of paintings Bovill uses acrylic paint on canvas to create vibrant abstractions of the rainforest. Bovill uses layering to create texture and movement mirroring the movement in nature.
In addition, this collection sees Bovill playfully explore foreground and background - creating illusions of the rainforest extending deep within and past the edges of the canvas.
These paintings embody a childlike and playful style that lead the viewer to imagine an otherworldly place where snakes can fly and dragonflies are the size of birds.
