Landscape Memorial in Copper and Gold, Queenstown

Throughout the town’s 130 year history, diminishing gold resources resulted in a shift to copper mining. The copper smelters polluted the area with sulphur fumes and left the landscape sparse. In 1912, 42 men died in the Mt Lyell Disaster. This painting documents a sense of place and a narrative of the past.
