Description

‘Homage for the fragile’

This body of work explores the beauty and essence of ‘Bicheno’ on the East Coast of Tasmania through the language of drawing. Within my travels to Bicheno this past year the issues of climate change and endangerment of the local wildlife, has been my focus within my art practice. This place had touched me on a spiritual level which gave me inspiration for this body of work.

My process of drawing within the technical nature I had undertaken, relates back to how fragile, detailed and beautiful the environment is on a local and global scale. Humanity is a major factor to the environment and all living things, which is what we need to take homage to. Every fine pen stroke, pencil mark and the amount of time put into these drawings captures a moment in time of my personal experience within the landscape, and how precious each subject within these drawings are. I hope to bring awareness to the public through these artworks in what we need to respect and preserve, for a bright future to come.

My work in this series explores specific subjects affected from human activity, such as bees, birds and various vegetation species. Across the entire globe we are faced with growing evidence that how we live, has lasting effects upon the rest of the world. Throughout my research of written materials and my own photographic documentations, my latest series has evolved to suit the purpose of symbolising the finite nature of nature, specifically within Bicheno “Heaven on Earth”.

I aim to portray the delicate beauty and fragility of life throughout this series, to leave the viewer with a new found respect and concern for the rest of life around them.
