Abstract

An exhibition of digital and embroidered images of extinct and vulnerable plants and animals, from across Far North Queensland. This exhibition titled Red Listed aims to encourage reflection about the loss of plant and animal species in the tropics and on a global level. There is also concern about the number and type of animals which are vulnerable. In representing these plants on an endless red list, I have attempted to increase concern about the precarious existence of the creatures.

Research Statement

Research Background The capacity of visual art to communicate concerns about the impact of people on the habitat of other living entities forms the background to this exhibition. Information from the Queensland Nature Conservation Act 1992 and Nature Conservation (Wildlife) Regulation 2006 has been used to identify extinct and endangered plants and animals in this region.
Research Contribution The idea that art can be a source of understanding underpins the motivation for this exhibition. The visual nature of these works enables people to see what is lost and what is threatened in a new light. The work aims to encourage reflection about the loss of plant and animal species in the tropics and on a global level. There is also concern about the number and type of animals which are vulnerable.
Research Significance This exhibition is significant because it has the potential to raise community awareness of the extinction of a plant and animal species in the tropics. The visual form of the artwork creates a means of seeing what is lost. This exhibition is significant because it contributes to the investigation of the potential for art to generate understanding.
