The journey of a River is a fascinating part of our Earths creation. Water flows, erodes and deposits to shape our landscape and leave traces of a story further upstream. The Orange River runs for thousands of miles through South Africa It witnesses many colourful landscapes from bountiful to desert and then back again all the while carving out it’s path to its final destination. The Atlantic Ocean .
Vast distances covered from the arid east to the plentiful Atlantic west coast. This unique river is a silent story teller laden with treasures and stories we will never hear.
Using layers of plaster to create a texture like a golden river bed I added gold leaf and gold mineral powders in resin to the centre then add a variety of dazzling watery mineral pigments and alcohol inks to show the variety of landscapes the River passes through from yellow,orange and red of the desert to plush vegetation and sea of aquas, greens and blue
