‘Char-coal’ is a continuation of a larger series that explores the censorship and quality of our news and the importance of independent journalism.
It was made in response to the current and unprecedented bushfire emergency that is raging across Australia. Our climate is changing and our house is on fire! The world is watching and waiting for our leaders to wake up and trust the science instead of perpetuating the fantasy of ‘alternative facts’ and ‘fake news’.
In my multi-disciplinary art practice I explore contemporary stitch as a mark making tool and paper as my ‘fabric’ of choice.
