4 steel plate etching and aquatint on Stonehenge paper and recycled survey plan.
36 × 36 cm
2009

A work inspired by a recent visit to the small ex-Hydro town of Waddamana in the central highlands of Tasmania.

This was my first arrangement of the print. I decided it needed more strata to convey the sense of passing time and history. The final version can be seen here.

    Simply awesome juxtaposition of techniques, textures and colors. This goes direct to the “must own” list.

  • Thanks Jason. I have a few works in this series, but still playing around with their compositions. Will post some more when I am finally happy with them. Cheers, Brett

    Excellent. Looking forward to those that pass scrutiny. Or are ‘abandoned’ as someone once said of all artwoks.
