A Call to Change
MaterialWork on paper
DescriptionSymbolically, this work is based on the conspicuous decline of our Christmas Beetles. In the web of life, beetles are both important as plant pollinators and agents of the nutrient cycle at root level. Their curl grubs and wriggling pupae were once common in most backyards but are increasingly rare to find, hence bringing attention to an obvious interruption somewhere in their live cycle. The triangular frame signifies a pivot point, (also the algebraic symbol delta = change). Sculptured 30gsm handmade Kozo paper, Mulberry Tengushu with Hahnemuhle NOT and Arches hot pressed cotton sheet-formed papers. Coloured ink tinting.
