Solomon Booth: Drifting

June 20 - July 20

Solomon Booth, Mindfulness (VI), 2023. Monotype on printing paper, 76 x 56cm. Courtesy: the artist and Mossenson Galleries, Perth.

At first glance Solomon Booth’s recent prints are a story about the impact of plastic waste on the environment and the harmful effect it has on marine life in the Torres Strait, or Zenadth Kes.

As Booth says, “plastic bags are detrimental to the environment and may often be mistaken for jellyfish, which are a food source for the Waru (Green-Sea Turtle). Waru can be found throughout the waters of Zenadth Kes and have been an important part of our people’s diet for thousands of years. For the sake of our people, and future generations, it is important for everyone to look after our environment”.

But underneath this story is another, a story about the importance of being mindful in all of our relationships; with each other and with the world around us, and to be in balance with everything we consume “physically, mentally and spiritually, if we are to live a fruitful and productive life”.

Opening Event: Thursday 20 June, 6 – 8pm.
