“We don’t live in nature, we are nature” reflects the hexagon framework for the CS Gallery installation which made me think of a beehive. Native bees are integral members of our ecosystem, as they are threatened so is this ecosystem. When we forget our role in nature, as stewards, protectors, givers and receivers we can cause great harm to the ecosystem we live within, the consequences of which ripple throughout our lives.
This artwork was selected by The City of Melton to be on display at the Caroline Springs Gallery for the duration of 2023. The vibrant digital illustration celebrates the connection between the land, water, sky, animals and people in Caroline Springs and promotes the appreciation and stewardship of the City’s unique natural environment.
