Abstract The Casuarina Tree is an experimental body of art work and accompanying written exegesis exploring the abstract representation of nature with particular reference to Australian native plants. This research explores the interstices between native plants and creative practice focusing on non-representational and abstract responses. Through critical engagement with the visual culture and representation of nature within the broader context of Australian art this research aims to find original, abstract forms in the translation of native plants. In the development of an experimental body of visual research utilising drawing and mark-making as a catalyst for the production and synthesis of abstract painting this research seeks to contribute new understandings to the field of abstraction and the representation of nature specific to the Australian experience.
