Where the Forest Meets the Sea/Baker, Jeannie/Hardb/0862033179/S036-G
My father knows a place we can only reach by boat.
Not many people go there, and you have to know the way through the reef.
When we arrive, cockatoos rise from the forest in a squawking cloud.
My father says there has been a forest here for over a hundred million years.
The place, the people, and the predicament are real. This forest is part of the wilderness between the Daintree River and Bloomfield in North Queensland, Australia. There remain at the making of this book only 296,000 acres of wet tropical rain forest wilderness that meet the ocean waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Small as it is, this is the largest pristine area of rain forest left in Australia.
Jeannie Baker made two extensive field trips to the Daintree Wilderness to research and collect materials.
These relief collages are constructed from a multitude of materials, including modeling clay, papers, textured materials, preserved natural materials, and paints.
The collages are mostly the same size as the reproductions.
