Shifting Stones II
DescriptionThe title Shifting Stones references the layers of rock embedded within Kakadu and their journey and movement over time.
Once perched on the ocean's edge, the sandstone has migrated over time, shifting from horizontal formations to vertical, stretching closer and closer towards the sky.
The solid blocks of granite blue paint beautifully offset with the freely applied, gestural strokes of orange and brown, making the rock forms appear to float and move across the canvas like they do in Kakadu.
The multiple layers of paint added to the canvas over time speak to this lifecycle of the escarpment, reminding us of how earth acts as an archive of time and being.
