River Bed is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.
The North West Bay River runs through bush land above the township of Margate, in Southern Tasmania. Its rocky bed is full of twists and turns, quiet pools, and small waterfalls. Because you can never see very far along it, each part of it feels like a private little world – a tiny valley with trees on either side and paved with stones.
This artwork was inspired by the lively areas of white water with their complex eddies and currents, and the way they contrast with the tranquil green pools that feed them.
