Artist's Description

REK continues in his finely detialed photo realistic approach with "Brotherly Love" featuring Maui and Oakey the catalina macaws.
The original reference image gave the artist pause to reflect on the jovial antics he shares with his own brother and the unique bond between them.
Set against a REK's signature wallpaper like repetitious botanical backdrops, the subjects intermingle with the monochromatic foliage in this composition. Elements of this piece such the beak, eye and wrinkled skin contain 5 separate layers of acrylic paint to create ultra-lifelike depth while the softness and interplay of light and shadow in the brother's gloriously festive feathers is truer to life than ever before.
Provenance
- This artwork was featured in the Royal Qld Art Societies 2020 All creatures and wild things biennial exhibition where REK was the guest judge
