Rock Flour Blue - Kat Wright Print
Rock Flour Blue - "Why is Morain Lake so blue? Well, it's because of something called rock flour - fine, grained, silt-sized particles of rock, created by the grinding of bedrock from glacial erosion. Because the material is very small, it becomes suspended in meltwater making the water appear cloudy or milky and the blue colour appears when light is refracted off of the suspended particles. The smaller the rock flour particles, the bluer the lake."
Growing up in North Vancouver and living in the Canadian Rockies in Canmore, Alberta, has been of invaluable influence on Kat's work. The variety of landscapes is a constant inspiration, whether it is lush forests, waterfront coastlines or towering mountains. Kat's goal is to use her art to capture the magic and power that the mountains hold.
