Griffins Trail passes through the Morton National Park, Kangaroo Valley, NSW. It features tall wet and dry Sclerophyll Forests and descends through enchanting rock gardens to Yarrunga Creek.
The boulders and rocky outcrops in this area are truly magnificent, lending themselves to being observed, touched and enjoyed- enticing the viewer to imagine all they have witnessed of this landscape over millions of years. These vast sandstone forms act as host for a myriad of plant species and environs for wildlife and birds and are important inhabitants of this place.
I was inspired to paint the monolithic, sculptural form of this rock after a recent hiking expedition. Being utterly fascinated by its dominant and unyielding mass, I was struck by its seemingly tender ability to provide a safe dwelling place for delicate ferns and mosses, animals and insects. The narratives that this one rock reveals about the constancy and agility of the Australian Bush can provide an apt metaphor for hope in an uncertain world.
