Garden of Gold

Acrylic on linen

1100 mm x 1400 mm

The Australian landscape is changing rapidly as industry and commerce introduce new ways of using the land to create material and economic wealth – but at what cost? Acalypha (introduced) and the ivory curl (native) grow quietly together in a garden bathed in gold. Getting the balance right is difficult. Adapting, blending, integrating, exploring diversity, creating harmony and cultural connections is a complex issue, but our relationship with this land and its natural environment is unique in the world, and this vulnerable and sublime island home is our liquid gold.
