Elemental Landforms at Lake Mungo

A larger mixed media about Lake Mungo consists of frottage taken from different surface areas. I folded a large sheet printmaking paper into three sections aiming to capture samples of the various types of terrain. Graphite was used to take a rubbing from a stone (alluding to the Gol Gol formation on top of which the lunette built) seen in the top right of the composition. The middle section consists of traces of clay and sand (alluding to how the lunette built up into dunes) and the top left section now almost obscured retained a stain as this section of the paper buried into darkened places of the dune, where moisture caused possibly by decaying remnant vegetation,  left an imprint.

Once again, I turned the composition up side down where it appeared to read better for me.
