Kangaroo Island After the Fires

KANGAROO ISLAND AFTER THE FIRES

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

Only the burnt skeletons of mallee gums & shrub remain.

Yet among them vivid lime, lemon & pink leaf buds cling to the base of blackened trunks.

I arrange the blooms in vases – images of hope & renewal.

Over two long years of pandemic lock downs I paint the flora, highlighting colour, tone & texture.

The upside down images still rooted in the soil flip like op art under the beholder’s gaze, confusing the eye.

Shot raw on my DSLR camera. Hand pinted with acrylics & charcoal on cotton rag.

I shoot climate change. A Sydney-based artist, writer & photographer, I have been documenting over 10 years the impact of the climate crisis on Australia’s islands & coastal communities.

I have born witness to the oceans engulfing the Torres Strait on our northern frontier, camped in the threatened forests of Takayna, Tasmania & shacked up on the fire ravaged southern coast of Kangaroo Island..Beyond, I have journeyed north by river & by foot into the Indonesian rain forests of Sumatra & Kalimantan, Borneo to photograph the endangered orang-utan.

My images have featured on ABC News24, Good Weekend Magazine, SMH, HeadOn Photo Festival & the Walkleys slide night.

Exhibiting Fine Art Kangaroo Island & GalleryEast, Sydney.

With more then 40 years working in media & the arts, my work shifts between fine art, photojournalism, fantasy & documentary
