Windows to soul's garden

High fired porcelain, mono-print, erosion

This work is inspired by the remnant native bush and grasslands that exist on urban fringes in Australia. It explores these transitional spaces as points of intersection between the natural environment, the impact of human settlement and the objectives of environmental conservation.

As population growth in towns and cities results in suburban sprawl, access to natural surrounds is increasingly sought after for its views and recreational potential.

However, native bush is often perceived from a purely consumerist perspective as an extension to domestic living space rather than a biodiverse entity to be preserved and protected.
