Bushfire Relief : Acacia spectabilis
As a response to the bushfires that have ravaged New South Wales and Queensland recently I have created this work. The Acacia spectabilis has been chosen as a species because it is endemic to the regions burned. It also is a species that relies on fire for germination and it represents the regrowth and rebirth that I hope is to come in this affected region. The acacia, or wattle, as its commonly known, is a symbol of resilience in the Australian culture, and so, yellow blooms are contrasted against a charcoal-black background to represent light within darkness, renewal amongst destruction - and hope for recovery for the people and animals of the Australian bush.
