About the artwork:

Landscape Memorial in Copper and Gold, Queenstown


Finalist in the Glover Prize 2010

Queenstown, with its hills stripped bare of timber to fire the local copper smelters, once had the appearance of a deserted moonscape. Throughout the town’s one hundred and thirty year mining history, the smelters polluted the area with sulphur fumes and left the landscape sparse. Still imbedded with historical scars of industry, now parts of this distinctive landscape are regenerating.

Under the impressive rock formation of Mt. Owen (locally known as Our Lady of the West) lies a woven landscape. The rich layers of copper, gold and iron ore signify the historical sources of the town’s origins, heritage and identity.

About the Cockle Creek to Queenstown collection:

Cockle Creek to Queenstown interprets, with visual images and history, the Tasmanian landscape through a combination of themes. These include: tracing the journeys of the early exploration by the Europeans, the settlement of the Tasmania, the representation of palawa kani, illustrations of the land and its histories and the relationship between the images and text.

About the print on canvas:

Each canvas is hand-stretched over a kiln-dried timber frame and coated with Aquathane-UV liquid laminate. This ensures the prints are fade-resistant, durable, and easy to clean. Print comes on premium archival canvas and printed with genuine Canon inks to guarantee the prints are made to the highest standard.

Please note – actual size may vary, size indicates maximum width or height (eg. portrait or landscape).
