This artwork has won the Still Life category in the Bluethumb 2023 Art Prize! It is available to purchase on site and is currently on view in Bluethumb's Melbourne Gallery from 11th October.

A deliberately composed still life, “Plants Taste Better’ aims to subtly challenge the viewer to ponder their own role in current environmental issues, specifically on soil quality and our food chains, and their global impact.
Struck by Arthur’s Streeton’s prophetic dystopian landscape paintings from the 1920s highlighting his concerns and projections for the environment in the future, Streeton’s paintings served as a catalyst to pose my own current concerns about soil quality and food supply chains, and their effects on our land we are custodians of. My hope is that the viewer is prompted to have a further conversation about these issues to begin the catalyst for change.
Equally this still life painting is a celebration of the natural world around us and the way we can enjoy nature in our homes and as our food, and a total appreciation of nature's design.

This painting was a finalist in the Northern Beaches Environment award
