450 x 450 mm (1 of multi-panel x 25)

Chapman’s art has been obsessed with time’s passage and the colonization of Australia by noxious plants for two decades. … 
[she] paints memories … through the stains and decaying remnants of fruit flies, prickly pear, blackberry, paddy melon
and other plants gathered during artist camps along the length of NSW’s Castlereagh River.
She transforms this harvest into a fragile and disturbingly familiar world.
