Ningaloo I

Paintings

Finalist

Oil on canvas, 118cm x 118cm

Reflecting on the myriad of connections and interdependencies found in nature, Ningaloo I speaks of the fragility of coral reef systems made apparent by escalating bleaching events. The painting is in turn scraped back and lustrous, conjuring both the chalky texture of coral and the shimmering ocean.
