The painting "Clay Pit at Bacchus Marsh" offered by Dennis Bryans observes the interactions of mining and the environment in which it is carried out.

The earth and minerals exposed in the clay pit have produced colours and forms that counterpoint intensely with the surrounding area and dramatically reveal the natural forces of the landscape.

The water gathered in the pit similarly reflects the colours of the sky against the mineralized sediments and dark growths in its depths.
