Beyond The Present
Through art, we roam far from home.
The Darwinism series was inspired by the tall grass of the Northern Territory, where Thierry B visited on a trip to buy aboriginal art.
He was struck by the spears of grass rising several metres to touch the sky.
This series is made without a brush. The mottled background is created with a palette knife.
The expressive landscape of dancing grass is made when the artist throws paint at the canvas with an effortless flick of the wrist. Layers are built up rapidly in a process that’s free and brimming with joy.
The rhythmic shapes of the blades of grass become a mantra drawing you in. The space between the grass acts like a pause for breath and brings to life a transient moment in time.
Dive in, push the grass aside, and begin your adventure.

How it was made
We have chosen to partner with Digital Art Directory to bring you this exclusive collection of limited edition fine art reproductions. They are the printer for Australia’s renowned artists like Howard Arkley, Russell Drysdale, John Olsen, Lin Onus, Jeffrey Smart, Tim Storrier, Brett Whiteley and Thierry B.
Our archival fine art reproductions are captured from the original artwork, colour-matched and proofed with the artist. They are printed using Japanese pigment inks on 100% cotton fibre mould made on 300gsm watercolour paper, which is pH neutral, acid and lignin free. This bright white paper contains calcium carbonate as a buffer for atmospheric acids.
Wilhelm Imaging Research has conducted print permanence testing, at 75°F and 60% pH, measured at 450 lux, in “standard” indoor display for 12 hours per day, on this paper stock. They have confirmed the minimum print life to be at least 120-130 years before any noticeable fading occurs, under these conditions.
Each one is embossed with Thierry B’s personal logo, Digital Art Directory’s embossment and our guarantee of quality and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
A wall is not a wall unless it has a Thierry B on it.
