Master of Contemporary Art
Tyvek is a series of drawings made on a synthetic fibre that is derived from crude oil. This work uses the material to convey a shared message about the threats to aquatic life and ecosystems. The multitude of whimsical drawings relates to the ongoing issues in our environment still experienced today, global warming, pollution, climate change, genetic modification, and effect on these human activities on marine life.
In this work, I reflect on the topic of sustainability - Informed by my interest in mixed cultural identity, transcultural living, and feminism. My practice involves exploring connections to personal narratives and to the environment that I recognise as places of belonging and home. My conceptual process employs investigating notions of mystical beings, animals, mythical, supernatural hybrid creatures, as positive agents of transformation in contemporary art and culture.
