This image is from one from my Trig point series. It’s a great walk to Mount Gingera where there is a unique ecosystem. The landscape depicted in this painting initially looks quite beautiful in a gothic, high country, mountainous kind of way. However, clearly visible in this area is the significant devastation caused by the 2020 bushfires. The landscape, while in recovery, is scarred by this event and thus the ghostly, skeletal remains of the forest of burnt trees sit in the background as a reminder of that recent trauma as well as a signifier of our ever-present collective impact on the environment.
