Description: Two of Australia’s most beautiful flowers, the wattle and the grevillea, inspired these hangings. Helen screen-printed her designs in two overlapping colours, over which Tricia lettered and embroidered the descriptive words ... A pair of people and two forms of printing … two different flowers, each printed in two colours, then the overlying lettering done twice (ink embellished with gold embroidery) … paired printing indeed!

Displayed in “The Language of Nature II” exhibition and “Floressence” at Mt Coot-tha (read more information about this in my Residency Blog).
