Pedder Glacial Textures

Exhibition: Floating Geologies
‘Floating Geologies’ is a visual narrative of ancient geological processes that have created Tasmania’s highly complex and rugged landscapes.
The original Lake Pedder, with its unique and treasured quartzite beach, was formed more recently from extended glacial weathering of the underlying geology. Lake Pedder and its magnificent fresh water ecosystem and pink quartzite beach was drowned 50 years ago to create a hydro impoundment. Recent engineering studies have proposed the draining some of the dam area to Restore Lake Pedder and uncover its world renowned beach. This drawing conveys the powerful glacial forces that formed this unique ecosystem.
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.
