Art Edit presents a curated selection of artists whose work is inspired by nature.
The detail in the works of painter and illustrator Sandra Temple is so fine that at first glance you’d take her for a photographer. The Brisbane-based artist – who both teaches and works in a wide variety of mediums – works in intricate stages, first rendering her subjects in small, tonal sketches before transferring the work onto board or canvas and finishing them with a fine detail that makes lends the illusion of realism.
Whether the final result is a posing snake or a resting lion, there is an element of voyeurism to the work; a privileged sense that you’ve come closer to the real thing than real life would permit.
