Artwork Description

Oil on canvas

Signed on the back.

Influenced my the early frottage work on Michelle Stuart from the 1970's. This work is built up in layers of frottaged rock surfaces and flat colour areas which are scrapped back to reveal underlaying textures and colours.

It portrays the physical and optical navigational challenges of The Lost world Track high on kunnayi (Mt Wellington, Hobart). A steep and challenging track of fallen car-sized dolerite boulders, which are covered in lichen and the occasional track-marker painted directly onto the boulders in red and yellow.

On this Track one is constantly shifting their eyes from down at one'sfeet (to prevent falling into a cleft between boulders) to up ahead at the next looming boulder to be scaled.

The painting seeks to conflate these two views into one image, the ground and the vertical condensed into one plane.
