Through the process of creating my current work I developed an approach to phenomenologically mapping my experiences of Weereewa, an ephemeral lake between Goulburn and Canberra. My experiences seen in glimpses, felt bodily, heard and reflected upon when walking on the lake bed have been developed as fragments of paper and ply cutouts that have been monoprinted and inked up.
They have their own sense of ephemerality and impermanence that reflects these experiences. These fragments have become installations, they have been developed and explored through water colour drawings, and cutouts where the patterning suggested by the elemental landscape of the lake became the language of flux. These cutouts are also woodblock plates that will have another life as prints on paper as the process further unfolds.
