RAYMOND ARNOLD

I am living and working in the remote west coast of Tasmania. Relentless mining activity for over a century reduced the landscape to what various people have described as a ‘moonscape’. The rainforest has gone, but the almost three metres of rain a year remains to scour the valleys.
My prints ‘map’ the terrain around my home and become avatars of a landscape poised between a type of renewal and eternal vacancy.

Copper etching plates grounded and incised through months of work enfold details of waste rock rumble, fugitive vegetation and serrated skylines of the West’s sublime landscape onto beautiful 300gsm rag paper.
