Eradicate Rainforest of the Sea

The theme of this artwork was derived from the effects that climate change is having on modern day society, where I focused on the damage that severe weather events are having on natural environments. In this piece I explore the irreversible damage that cyclones have on the coral reef ecosystems. I conveyed this idea through the utilisation of aerial views to provide a different perspective of the world around us, allowing me to convey the catastrophic widespread impact of cyclones. I was inspired by satellite imagery to symbolically depict the look of cyclones, which allowed my piece to portray the looming threat that cyclones have on natural environments, providing contrast within the artwork to convey a destroyed and dying reef in comparison to the natural beauty of coral reef ecosystem.
