Marek Herburt is fascinated by the complexity and variety of plant life intermixed with the vibrancy of colours in the Australian landscape. In this exhibition Marek portrays how light influences colours in nature. There are two ways of observing colours, local and global. The usual way to observe colours is local. This means the perception is influenced by what the brain is telling us, for example, that a tree trunk is brown, foliage is green and the sky is blue. Seeing colours globally means observing all the colours at the same time, providing the opportunity to see colours as they actually appear in nature, that is, bright and contrasting. Tree trunks, leaves and sky can be any possible colour. The unpredictability of the colours and the interplay of light while observing colours globally is a constant source of inspirationfor Marek when connecting with nature.
