The Ancient Sea: Curtain Springs NT

The Ancient Sea: Curtin Springs NT - Monoprint, photo screen print and direct block printing and drawing on rice paper using inks made from ochres gathered at Curtin Springs.

The idea for this piece took root during an artists’ residency at Curtin Springs Station in the NT where the wall of the ancient inland sea was quite a distinct feature of the landscape. It sits proud of the surrounding plain for several kilometers. When you stand and gaze along it you are standing on the seabed of a millennia ago.
