Research Statement

Research Background This acrylic and mixed media painting was part of Cairns Art Society's Artists of the North Exhibition in 2010. The exhibition features local artists and their portrayals of the tropical environment. This painting features a snapshot of the rainforest, with vines weaving through tall trees.
Research Contribution The natural environment of far north Queensland is as fragile as it is beautiful. Its species, both animal and plant, disappear at an alarming rate. This painting documents some of the plants in the landscape encouraging the viewer to see the beauty and work towards sustaining the environment for the future.
Research Significance The research supports the tropical focus at JCU and the need for appreciation and conservation of the tropical environment.
