Misuse and misrule

This long view of the land is built on earth stains and bees wax. It suggests divisions created by use/misuse, passages of fertility and aridity due to practices like broad scale land clearing and unsustainable agriculture.

The work is based on several field trips to Fowlers Gap, a university research station near Broken Hill. I grew up on the Darling Downs, on some of the most fertile soils in the world. The work is currently hung in the 5th International Open Submission Printmaking Show at Art in Wharepuke, N.Z.
