ARTIST STATEMENT

This piece of work is a representation of the damage we are currently doing to our country. The leaves on the tree are collected from broken beer bottles that are discarded daily on our beaches. There are a number of stories being told where rubbish in our oceans that is killing our marine life. The aboriginal designs depict our history and past where for thousands of years our lands were respected. The tap dripping blood shows how we are continuously taking from our precious water resources, across to the koala riding the shotgun with crosshairs above it’s head reminds us of how important our native fauna and flora is to who we are as a nation and forms part of our identity.
