Broken Land I, by Brenda Hartill

This is hidden away in the bathroom at Berkley Cinemas in Mission Bay, where I went last night. I often admire it.

Unfortunately the photo (and the condition of the print) is pretty bad. I had to stand quite far back to avoid the reflection of the bathroom lights off the glass, which stripped the image of some of its colour. There’s actually a red vein just to the right of the fissure in the middle.

Fortunately, I managed to find a good image of the original on Brenda’s website. Wow. The image above is missing so much.

Looking at some of her other work, too, it’s stunning. I really love it.
