Skin

Joshua Bonson

Skin reveals a network of interconnected scales creating the armoured skin of the Salt Water Crocodile, My Totem.
Thick serrations of paint create movement and texture portraying the landscape and oceans that are the Arafura Sea. Glittering, sapphire water reflects the aqua blue sky, the oceans currents and tides.
Sand separates the deep blue sea from the land, shades of yellow ochre reflect the details of rocks and sand.
Visually powerful, majestic, magnificent and utterly incomparable is The Saltwater Crocodile.
Everything is connected, the land, the water and us. Like the Crocodile we are saltwater people with an ancient lineage.
I am part of the work, as I Run my hands across the surface.
