From the artist

This work shows part of the track that leads down to St Columba Falls in north-eastern Tasmania. The track traverses down through giant tree ferns, streams trickling through deep cool gullies. There is dappled light and bright shards of glare. The serenity that resides within that cool green solitude, with both loud and cascading waters and quiet pools, recalls an earlier primeval time.
