I really dig this Undercover Cork mixed media painting. It is painted on cork with fabric. I love it!! It is number 17 in a series.
She says My cork series is a statement of my Portuguese origins. It’s a coming back to nature, to raw, to minimalism, to simplicity…
She calls it absolutely spontaneous.
She includes some interesting cork details, which I didn’t know.
It’s the bark of a tree (quercus suber, commonly called the cork oak)
it’s a 100% natural raw material, that is 100% reusable and 100% recyclable, extracted from cork oaks without harming the normal development of the species and without damaging the tree. The extracted cork is 100% harnessed.
the production of cork does not destroy trees. After harvesting, the cork oak undergoes a process of self-regeneration not seen in any other species.
Carla is in the Saatchi gallery. She lives and works in Portugal. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my special link to purchase.
