In this New York apartment a nostalgic image of Lake Peddar, an abstract ‘painting’ of a satellite view of the lake (pre-1972 flooding) and Tasmanian waratah flowers show how we typically relate to the iconic Tasmanian landscape. We can’t visit this place any more, but we visit it in our minds and through the various iconography we generate around landscapes such as these.
