Thredbo Diggings

Copper Plate Etching

52 (L) cm x 39.3 (H) cm

Price: $950

The work ‘Thredbo Diggings’ is an etching that derived from my journey to Thredbo Valley during the winter season. While I camped in the snow, I had the chance to wonder and find a composition that captured the way unique landscape of the snowy mountains. ‘Thredbo Diggings’ is the name of the campsite where I was sleeping for the week. Just out from the camp area, there was a lonesome tree who stood proud and separate from all the rest. Although alone, he had the best view that swept over the valley, right in between each mountain on either side. This work is a true representation of the landscape I saw during my time amongst Australia’s highest peaks.

Late Afternoon on Thredbo River

Copper Plate Etching

83.5 (L) cm x 67 (H) cm

Price: $1200

The work ‘Late Afternoon on Thredbo River’ has derived from my journey to Thredbo Valley during the winter season. While I camped in the snow, I had the chance to wander and find a scene for a composition that captured my time and experience while out amongst Australia’s highest peaks. ‘Late Afternoon on Thredbo River’ was a composition I found in the mountains of Australia. While I was exploring on a hike through Thredbo Valley, I stumbled across a tree sitting on top a piece of land, almost like an island, separate from the riverbank. I thought it was interesting enough to sit by the water in late afternoon and capture the scene with my camera and further studies to later develop into an etching in my studio. It is a true representation of the place has I try to capture it with great likeliness, hoping to bring the outdoors to the doorstep.

Beyond the Surface

Copper Plate Etching

62 (L) cm x 39.3 (H) cm

Price: $950

The work ‘Beyond the Surface’ has derived from my journey to Thredbo Valley during the winter season. While I camped in the snow, I had the chance to wonder and find a scene for a composition that captured my time and experience while out amongst Australia’s highest peaks. ‘Beyond the Surface’ is the way I visualised the environment in which I was depicting. It embodies a new way at looking at the landscape, as it represents what lies on the surface distinguishable to the observer, but starts to move beyond what lies visible to the human eye – through small details like imagining the contours of scene, or the rest of the rock that is hidden beneath the surface. With a mix of representation and imagination there are two juxtaposing forces while looking at the landscape, I push the structure allowing me to compose a better understanding and articulation of my surroundings, as I start to move ever slowly to a more abstract approach.
