Charcoal on the Hoof – 2006

Oil on canvas.  91x 122cm

Goonoo Forest near the Warrembungles NSW after intense Bushfires. Lansdcape of desolation and destruction. Landscape as metaphor for environmental devastation related to Climate Change and Global warming. While fires are a natural phenomenon, humans contribute substantially to making them occur – Nature meets Hominoid rapaciousness. Governments’ reactionary inaction in Australia trails woefully behind devloped countries’ efforts to address Global warming.
