The Inside-Ring II

Cara Johnson is an artist and jeweller hailing from Bellbrae on the Surf Coast. Currently in her final year of a Bachelor of Fine Art – Object Based Practice (Gold and Silversmithing) at RMIT, Cara has developed a very distinct approach and style, her handmade jewellery and drawings clearly express a love for creating. Cara uses the natural environment as her main source of inspiration, creating beautiful drawings and objects that reflect tiny details captured from nature.

The same tracks, again and again.

Slow down. Look closer. Be quiet. Be alone.

The repetition offers intimacy.

Knowing a place allows new details to emerge.

Collections of times, weather and things accumulate.

The dirt is red.

Icy winds slowly shape the ironbark.

The work begins and ends on the tracks.
