About the artwork:

The Confluence, King and Queen Rivers


Finalist in the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize at the South Australian Museum, Adelaide in 2013

Exhibited in Origins – Landscapes of Queenstown by Mandy Hunniford as part of the The Unconformity Festival, Queenstown in 2021

The confluence of the King and Queen Rivers is a few kilometres south of Queenstown on the west coast of Tasmania. A confluence is the merging of two rivers and this artwork portrays the merging of two very different rivers.

The pristine and wild King River flowing from the Highlands flows blue and brown while the Queen River, polluted by 100 million tons of iron ore tailings over the last century, contrasts with its toxic hues of yellow.

About the Queenstown collection:

The Queenstown artwork presents  a combination of themes: its beautiful, unique but contested landscape, the complex histories of an arts/wilderness/mining town and the connections and closeness of its resilient community.

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).
