'Patterns and Cockatoos' depicts two woman standing side by side, peering intently at the viewer. One folds her arms whilst holding her gaze, as if waiting for something to occur in the foreground. The other figure holds a Cockatoo, which sits contently on the palm of her Hand. Their Dresses are adorned with Australian native flowers. The figures have hair that entwines and tangles, reminiscent of tree roots, alluding to the connection between 'femininity' and 'mother nature'. This piece is part of a series of a larger series of work that aims to explore the intrinsic relationship between societies associations of femininity and the environment, epitomised by the concept of 'mother nature'.
