Mouth Flat & Lake Mungo 1992 - 1993

As part of my research for my MastersĀ I visited Lake Mungo in NSW with a group of family and friends in 1992. I loved the Lake Mungo region, the sandy and rocky areas, the flat dunes embedded with evidence of previous habitation. The dawn provided stunning vistas of the ridges, cliffs and desert landscapes. I made drawings of these elements and later developed the new concepts of combining the Shaped Stone forms within particular environments.

The new works had changed direction, encompassing both Shaped Stone and landscape. Techniques included etching, collographs, relief printing and I started cutting metal shapes with tin snips which were printed as blends over etchings. An edition of 35 of these were commissioned by the Print Council of Australia as a members print. Another location in Kangaroo Island at Mouth flat Beach also inspired me to find similar type shapes in the beach litter washed into natural arrangements by the huge waves and winds. The stones now became forms of wood, seaweed, pebbles. So this series of work developed, with Lake Mungo series into another body of works, all inspired by the original stones.
