THE MOUNTAIN COLLECTIVE #11 Too cool for School
Acrylic on Canvas 250mm x 200mm
These small artworks re part of a series of works by JUSTINE SLOUGH portraying the many different facets of Alpine fun.
Raised in the Southern Highlands Of NSW growing up each year my brothers and I would be bundled into our parents VW beetle at 4am for our annual one day trip to the Snowy Mountains. I fell in love with the textures, the temperature, the landscape and beauty of the Alpine region and later spent some seasons working as a snowboard instructor amongst many other jobs I had to do for the privilege of living on the Mountain in Thredbo. Many years have passed but the impression and culture are deeply ingrained within me.
