Rainforest Floor is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.

This artwork was inspired by the effect of light filtering through trees and back-lighting their leaves in temperate rainforest in North West Tasmania – not far from the tiny settlement of Corinna. The rainforest floor is typically covered with logs, fallen branches and leaves all in various stages of breaking down back into the soil, and covered with soft moss and ferns. The trees reach up, competing with each other for the sunlight so that only small dapples of light make it to the ground.
