Timeline in Brachina Gorge 2, 2016


New Home Page Exhibition – Absorbing the Landscape

My new Home Page images are part of an ongoing fascination for a gorge in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia and the 500 million year old Ediacaran fossils found there. In previous posts I described some of the geology and fossils found around Brachina Gorge and the Golden Spike for instance.Brachina Gorge, Flinders Ranges, South Australia and Etching Collage about Brachina Gorge and Art about Heads in the Landscape (Brachina Gorge)

I have extended the theme into the idea of mentally absorbing the landscape.  I look at Nature’s shapes/landforms/geomorphology from which I create preparatory drawings that lead into a type of deconstruction and  then a re visualisation of geological forms as I try to depict a visual simulation of Nature’s narrative, timeline and transformation and my thought process involved in learning about Nature and mind in flux.
