Water for Life International Art Exhibition 2018

This is an introductory video to the "Water for Life" Exhibition in which I am representing Australia next year.

Australia is the driest island/continent on earth and exhibitions such as these aim to raise the conscience of humanity.

My work will feature our driest landscapes, the great outback where water, although it has shaped the landscape for many millions of years and has left it's mark everywhere, no longer exists. When the rains do come up north and the waters flow wide over the floodplains, it gathers into salt lakes and is not supportive to life.

Water is really scarce here and it is worrying that our government doesn't seem to appreciate the value or disaster that is facing us.
