The wall-sculpture surfaced with locally sourced mussel-shells references the Sydney Harbour, its historical Aboriginal midden sites, as well as the natural geometrical patterns - whirlpools and Ocean waves.

A Year at the Coal Loader
Solo Exhibition / Mixed Media Installation 2017
The Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability
Solo exhibition A Year at the Coal Loader can be viewed as a coherent mixed media installation that emerged from the poetic dialogue with the evocative and unique North Sydney Council's Coal Loader Centre. The individual pieces were developed during Studholme's year at the site as resident artist and are indicative of a creative blending of her inner landscape with the external landscape of the site.
Materials such as sandstone, concrete, fabrics, salt crystals and mussel-shells form a visual metaphoric language representative of the local landscape - the harbour, the vegetation, the industrial buildings and tunnels.
