Red Bark, Maria Island is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.

Near the historic ruins of the Darlington Settlement on Maria Island, Southern Tasmania, there is a small dirt track that follows the coastline. A little way south of the township this track descends towards a bay where a rivulet runs along the inland side of the track. The rivulet forms a chain of still pools reflecting the backdrop of grasses and bushland.

This artwork was inspired by a group of trees growing beside the rivulet, with areas of bark shaded red-pink and grey.
