A series of six new works by Morrison Polkinghorne.

The life force that we all experience and share starts as a seedling and then grows strong. It is time of transition and growth for of us all to elevate to become who we are destined to be.

ELEVATE 
My work is holistic and environmental: I distill black lotus ink donations to the  temples. The brown washes I create derive from dried lotus pods. My crayon skies are created from natural beeswax formed  from petal ash. A hint of orange within the sunrise comes from shattered colonial roof tiles I collected after a severe storm in Battambang, Cambodia. The 24 karat gold I purchase from the artisan gold leaf makers in Mandalay, Myanmar or Burma. The glimmer of pure gold leaf I apply to these works  reaches through us to show us a new road.

The process of manually creating my colors takes time, but are produced with love and gratitude, and using classic time -worn techniques I have learnt through my myriad travels and life in SE Asia.

The brushes I use in these works
are hand-made from feathers I found in Angkor Wat.
