This work was developed for a satellite exhibition as part of the 2013 Fleurieu Prize. 

This work references the iconic Limestone Coast in South Australia, using the natural geometric cleavage that limestone takes. My intent with this work was to reference the minute mineral structures that create the expanse of sedimentary rock of the Limestone Coast, in a larger cloud-like form. This piece aims to represent the elements that create the landscapes that surrounds us, the shifting of rock, the movement of wind and water over time to carve and form the cliffs, hills and plains that surround us daily.
