Artist's Description

Original painting and photographic print.
This lake was flooded by Tasmanian Hydro-Electric Scheme. Covering up a wonderful paradise, this unique lake that was an inland sea, south of the middle of Tasmania, was flooded and is now under the Gorden River Dam. Not much research was done at Lake Peder apart from photographs taken by a famous photographer Olegas Truchanas & he was mentored by Peter Dombrovkis- both artists contributing to the struggle to preserve the wilderness. Olegas drew attention to the fact that we needed to ….’revise attitude to land under our feet and accept a role of steward and depart from the role of conquerer’. Sadly it took the Franklin River political storm to shake people up, too late for the beautiful Lake Peder.
