Tracing the Erskine
2012 @ Lorne Info Centre Feature wall & The Front Room
Resin coated photo drawings
The Erskine river carves its path past Mountain Ash trees that rise to the sky with majestic awe, dropping gum leaves that settle in the water, tainting it dark mirror colors, like the ancient land it snakes through.
Over the rocks the Erskine tumbles to enter into Lorne and this is where the Erskine finds the sea, finishing its journey.
The artwork is mounted on recycled fence posts found on a local farm where the sheep graze on this sun burnt country. The posts are mostly Red gum with the occasional cheeky Yellow Box and Squiggly Bark here and there.
