Desolate yet all undaunted | 2020
Original artwork by Sharon Field.
Desolate yet all undaunted, watercolour and graphite, 40 x 1600 cm.
Imagine 2000 square kilometres dominated by thousands of trees, the majestic Eucalyptus viminalis. Now, re-imagine this area as a massive graveyard, with all the trees dead. Monaro Runes is a visible response to climate change, a ruined landscape - the skeletonised trees like ancient runic symbols.
