In the intertidal zone of the Derwent Estuary foreshore in southernTasmania I unfurl a roll of French imported paper (Fig. 1). Its starkhomogenous white surface marks a line across the beach, overwriting thenatural environment. Over the period of a year I bring this paper back tothe site, immersing it in the river and laying washes of ink across itssurface. The tradition of drawing is tested to develop a nuanced andsensitive evocation of the place where I live. My aim is to acknowledgethe role western landscape and cartographical traditions had in takingpossession of the land, overwriting Indigenous cultures, to allow the stainsand shadows of colonialism be present in order to find new processes ofart that enters into dialogue with the flow of the land and all itsinhabitants.
