Seven female artists from the Eurobodalla region of New South Wales share their personal creative responses of experiencing the devastating fire event and its aftermath. They are capturing elements of regeneration, hope, resilience and collaborative healing, with a stark reminder of the fragility of our enviro-human co-existence and the urgency to enact our environmental responsibilities. Collectively, through painting, printmaking, sculpture, glass and installation works, the multi-generational, Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists invite viewers to experience the region’s emergence from the ashscape—to celebrate the surprising beauty of revival on the most infinitesimal scale, whilst simultaneously grappling with the reality of our personal and environmental vulnerabilities. The contributing works have been curated by Nicole Wallace, Co-Director of White Rhino Artspace.
Contributing artists include: Walbunja/Ngarigo Cheryl Davison-Overton, Mirabel Fitzgerald, Jennifer Hawkins, Julie Mia Holmes, Raewyn Lawrence, Amy Schleif and Jo Victoria.
