Artist's Description

In 1972, the year I was born, a priceless treasure was lost in Tasmania when Lake Pedder was dammed and flooded (www.lakepedder.org). This beautiful lake with its huge beach at one end was a truly remarkable sight that I will never see and I feel ripped off and cheated by the short sighted politicians of the day that have denied me the opportunity to see and experience this place and that have denied the earth of a priceless and unique ecosystem all for the sake of 60megawatts of hydro power. During the fight to save this icon the conservation movement in Australia was born and the world gained its first green party. In the mid 90’s on my own journey through life I heard someone refer to Lake Rhona as ‘the next best thing to Pedder’. With this description I determined to visit it and in 1999 I did so. The lake is much smaller than Pedder and is in an alpine cirque not a valley but its sandy beach is a shadow of the former. A beautiful place yet for me it will always be a melancholy spot due to the association I have given it with Pedder.
