Ponga Trees: The first is both a painting and poem. I found such beauty looking at the Ponga trees that grow in our bush and wish there was more respect for them worldwide. I think a world where climate change no longer exists is also a world that protects our natural bush. They are so powerful and beautiful that it makes me mad that we are currently destroying their ecosystem.
Mixing Cities and Nature: My second piece is a collage. The prompt "What if we just made art, not the climate crisis?" took me a little while to figure out. I think a world that is climate just is a mixture of our modern lifestyle and the natural world.
I had a photo that I had found in an op shop a little while back, which I decided to cut up and integrate into my own painting of a tree. This art piece shows the mixing of cities and nature, as represented by the photo and tree. To me, this is the only way the climate crisis can be fixed.
