Example text

It is that particular elusive shade of yellow with an egg-yolky orange tinge that sometimes hangs about for a while after the sun has set. Below the yellow is a dense bank of purple cloud and a series of smaller purple clouds which echo the shapes beneath them on the land of patches of water dispersed over dark olive grey mud. The colourlessnesses of darkness, the multiple greys that fill the night, have begun to fall on the earth but are not yet apparent in the sky. The water reflects the pale blue almost grey of the sky with a luminous white glow that is slightly more intense towards the centre of the painting.

This magpie is the third feature of Bosch’s painting, beside the Dragon Tree and the near-platypus – that miraculously connect it to the Australia I live in. Almost like a code, each of them emphasises that the profundity of relationships between animals and people, trees and people, places and people, exquisitely present in this artwork, spans the globe, centuries and cultures. In looking at the painting it is the idea of creation that is manifestly present, the idea of the world being formed from nothing, and the idea of purpose and intent.

They intimate a plan for a tree rather than an organic form. Like a drawing or a dream, so strange and yet perfectly real, they look supernatural, legendary, mythic. The forms of other plants from the early days of life on earth, such as cycads, tree ferns and baobabs, in which function finds form in ways that are both direct and extravagant, are similarly bold. The strong simplicity of these forms is resonant and surely connects with some primal image bank within us. Their shapes join and divide with an enormous sense of rhythm, purpose, harmony and balance.
