Over the Fence

By Artist Geoff Head


Over the Fence is a series of snapshots celebrating the beauty and wonder that exists in the natural environment viewed from the artists’ back fence. The works explore the beauty and diversity in this borrowed landscape.

These works which are drawn from a nature reserve, depict areas of tall grasses, trees and foliage showing the diversity of species and the way they grow and coexist with adjacent residential development.

By heightening the colour and stylizing the natural forms of the foliage, attention is drawn to the complexity of the growth structures and the relationships existing between the various plant forms found there.
