Welcome Home: 

Welcome home is about the feeling of friends that feel like family and family that feel like friends. It's in celebration of sitting around a table together deep in lighthearted conversation, soaking in the presence of those we love.



The Significance of the Alchemy Series.

Welcome Home , forms part of Rikki's series Alchemy. In a fast season of life, Rikki's quest for peace became a priority and she felt an intense need to slow, pause and recalibrate.

During the creation of the series, a memory of one of Rikki's most peaceful moments was regularly flooding back to her. 2007,  as an exchange student in Japan, sitting on the banks of a perfectly still lake surrounded by mountains. That moment although 14 years ago, was unforgettably grounded, an awe filled moment of pure presence. Rikki's series is a creative documentation of her transition to integrating more of that feeling back into her every day. Heavily inspired by tranquility, quality, peacefulness and Japanese culture, this series has a presence of its own. 

 

The process.

Gold leaf over continuous line work painting on traditional Japanese flecked rice paper

Rikki first draws her continuous line piece lightly upon the paper. She then hand paints a seize over her line work to create an adhesive foundation for the gold. She then lays fine sheets of gold leaf over the painted areas allowing the seize to cure to the gold. The excess gold is gently brushed away to reveal a gold line-work piece.

This piece has been pre framed by professional framers in Solid Tasmanian oak.
