Looking Down from Glacier Rock
Looking Down, is a reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.
Glacier Rock is one of the most prominent landmarks you come across if you walk the circuit around the edge of Dove lake in the Cradle Mountain national park. You are able to walk from the main track onto the top of Glacier rock where there is an amazing view across the lake to the mountains beyond. You can also look down over the edge of the rock to the lake surface, which is what inspired this artwork. Small, delicate plants clung to clefts in the white quartz rock, above larger highland shrubs and trees closer to the lake edge. Underneath, the lake surface was covered by constantly-changing wave patterns reflecting the sky and light beyond.
