BIMBLEBOX 153 Birds
Darren & I recently made some screen prints especially for the Bimblebox 153 Birds’ project. Bimblebox 153 Birds’ ’ is a developing art project composed of the bird species recorded on the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, Qld, Australia.
The aim of the Bimblebox Art Project is to highlight the threat of coal development to the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, to document Bimblebox creatively and to show Australians what we are at risk of losing. As we have learned more about the proposed coal mine developments for the Galilee Basin we have begun to realise the greater threat to life on Earth from generated carbon emissions if the Galilee Basin is developed for thermal coal export.
Through their artworks the artists are exploring the material, visual, historical, scientific and physical existence of the Bimblebox Nature Refuge while asking our community and our society as a whole what the future holds for this nature refuge and what human and societal value we place on it.
We’re both really pleased to have produced a print for this incredible project, and to be a part of a formidable collection of prints, including some of our very favourite artists / printmakers from all around Australia.
