I am very pleased to be a finalist in the 66th Blake Prize with my artwork – Trashed
I spend a lot of time walking and looking at birds along the Greenway corridor in the Inner West, Sydney.
Sometimes, I am fortunate enough to see an Australian Golden Whistler or Superb Fairy Wrens.
These two works are a response to urbanisation removing a lot of natural habitat for native plants and animals. Small birds like the Australain Golden Whistler and Superb Fairy Wren, are dependent on ground and shrub cover to provide shelter, food and a breeding ground. The Greenway is an important ecological corridor which helps protect the local population of birdlife. Without these green spaces, looking at images of birdlife might be all we have left.
