Exhibition: Floating Geologies
‘Floating Geologies’ is a visual narrative of ancient geological processes that have created Tasmania’s highly complex and rugged landscapes.
The ‘Rocky Cape Group’ of rocks (in North West Tasmania) were formed 1.5 billion years ago and were once connected to the Grand Canyon, USA. These powerful rock-scapes from the oldest Tasmanian rocks at Nelson Range, the stunning west coast rocks at Sarah Anne Rocks, Nelson Bay and Arthur River, through to the jagged rocks at pinmatik (Rocky Cape) and the undulating rocks at Boat Harbour on the North Coast. These rocks have travelled great distances over millions of years from the Northern to the Southern Hemisphere and are still on the move, albeit at the rate that our fingernails grow!
Julie Stoneman’s pen and ink drawings express a rich textural and spatial response to these significant landscapes in order to foster a sense of awe and wonder within the viewer.
