Elizabeth Edmonds is an artist and palaeoecologist investigating landscapes at temporal and spatial scales. Her drawing and painting practice combines art and science, exploring fine detailed studies of the natural world counter balanced with large atmospheric landscapes. These landscapes provide a visual narrative of past natural environments and future changes complicated by climate and human interaction.

'Paperbark Lines' presents a series of paperbark studies from the Walpole Wilderness where there are extensive areas of old paperbark woodlands, trees up to 10 metres or more. Each tree is wind swept, sculptured by the natural elements including fire and time. Each have a story to tell in their shape, curve, knot, and scars.

Working with ink, drawing, following, and exploring the wood grain or branch line is a contemplative act. Ink is soaked up by the paper, while wax layering alters the texture. The process is mesmeric for me, while the fragility and vulnerability of both wax drawings and paperbark trees are connected.
