A series of paintings depicting the escarpments of the Grose Valley and surrounding areas of the Upper Blue Mountains, NSW
‘We have the old canyons of the Blue Mountains and the gorges of the Northern Tablelands because they’re too wild to tame.
They haven’t been farmed or mined or developed. They stand bold and undefeated, and if we let ourselves sit with them we can hear their history, and we can see it, and I think we can really feel it’.
