below the line
June 12 - July 16, 2015
In this body of drawings, Julie explores the fluid medium of pen and ink based on the flooding of the original Lake Pedder. In addition to her drawings, Julie's wood fired ceramic trees express the death of the Lake Pedder forests after the flooding, and demonstrate her experience and long involvement with ceramics.
Lake Pedder Iies below the line in our subconscious,
an ancient glacial lake, desecrated, subsumed
but still present below the dam line.
An environmental line was drawn and then transgressed,
causing a wave of environmental action.
Each line is drawn with pen and ink
responding to the line above
leading us into the unknown.
