CHARCOAL LANDSCAPES

Climate crisis, March, 2020: Between fire & pandemic I stand among the ashes of Kangaroo Island.

When the inferno savaged half the island around two million kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, pygmy possums, goannas & endangered dunnarts perished.  Others injured & traumatised lost their homes & habitat.

I followed one bewildered roo amidst the ruins of a resort & returned him on canvas to the charred remains of his home & habitat.  He leads us across the island from the sand dunes to the malee & beyond.

PHOENIX BLOOMS

Amidst the devastation, green & pink leaf buds spring from the blackened trunks of island flora.  I have arranged the blooms in vases - images of hope & renewal
