Jane Marriott - 'Rock the Korong'

Wednesday 18 October - Sunday 5 November 2017

Just like the classic The Clash song Rock the Casbah, the rocks of Mount Korong have grabbed my artistic attention and keep me coming back for more. 

In this series of monotype prints I have tried to capture the spirit of the rocks that sit in the Mount Korong soil. I am interested in how they nestle into the land; growing up from deep within it. In the bright sunshine their shadows draw me inside their quiet world robustly withstanding the wild winds blowing over the plains. 

Most rocks form family groups with intricate relationships but some sit triumphantly by themselves forcing me to look more closely at their shapes, holes and other imperfections.
