The Working Proof: Kate Shaw - All that Glitters
Kate Shaw describes her work as vacillating between the real and the hallucinated, and this new print for The Working Proof is most definitely that. All that Glitters was inspired by the landscape in the Northern Territory of Australia, which ranges from tropical to rocky desert. One of the features of this landscape is the Ghost Gum, a type of eucalyptus tree, which has a white bark that changes color depending on the light conditions. At dusk the tree trunks range from a bright orange to a pale peach, depending on the intensity of the sun. All that Glitters depicts a Ghost Gum and considers the ephemeral nature of things.
15% of each print sold will be donated to American Forests for their work in conserving and replanting forests. Buy the print here, and read our interview with Kate here.
