The dramatic landscapes of the nearby Southern Alps offered Lusk ample opportunities to test her skill. This remarkably fluid work, in which dark ink flick-marks and loose ochre washes define the scarred, crumbling foothills in strong contrast to the crisp white mountains beyond, gives an indication of her exceptional ability in this notoriously challenging medium. Confident and spontaneous, it reveals an artist not confined by representation, but instead pushing her materials to their limit to create an expressive work that vibrates with energy and movement.
