About the Mountain Ash series

After visiting the Murrindindi Region of Victoria, I was intrigued by the landscape, in particular, the breath-taking Mountain Ash forests that were devastated by bushfires but are now in a state of regeneration.

Rich in texture and detail, these limited-edition photographic works capture the distinct hatched patterns created by thousands of extremely tall, bare, Mountain Ash trees around Marysville.

Each photograph explores the forest at different times, creating various interpretations of the multi-layered, textural patterns in these hauntingly beautiful and mystical landscapes.

The photographic artworks have monochromatic colour palettes ranging from neutral soft greys, deep blues and blacks to warm, earthy tones.

Artworks in portrait and landscape orientations provide interior styling options for statement pieces, pairs or collections in homes and commercial projects.

This Mountain Ash series celebrates the majesty of the forest, created by devastation and regeneration, but still standing tall. And I hope to encourage you to discover the detail and see the beauty in this magnificent landscape with these works.

My Mountain Ash–Standing Tall solo exhibition was held in 2021 at MIRA (Marysville Information and Regional Artspace).


Selected works from the series were shown at The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art in Sydney in 2021 and Melbourne 2022.

Select Mountain Ash series and Lake Fyans series works were exhibited together in my Regeneration. Reflection solo exhibition at Malvern Artists Society Gallery in late 2022.


"I love this art so much–beautiful dreamscapes that become something deeply, deeply moving when you understand the context. Christine has such as unique aesthetic; these works are a stunning tribute to the nature she loves. So glad I can hang one piece of this stunning series in my home." – Jayne, Collector
