Beneath the surface
HSC year: 2013, ARTEXPRESS year: 2014
Expressive form: Painting
Intricate links exist between the wellbeing of the human population and Earth. As technological developments deplete Earth’s resources, nature begins to lose her vitality. While corporate and individual greed turn a blind eye to the increasingly degraded environment, a reality 'health’ check reveals the damage civilisation has imposed upon the land. This 'plague’ of urbanisation and industrialisation grows from the darkened coasts into inland areas, like deadly cancers consuming the human body. Hence, my work portrays the parallels between the health of Earth and of humanity. It is by protecting our planet that our own wellbeing can be sustained.
Influencing artists: John Olsen, Edward Burtynsky, Fred Williams
