“Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos uses environmentally safe pigments to paint the trunks and limbs of trees in urban areas to help raise awareness of the nearly 32 million acres of forests lost each year around the world.”
‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’
Artist FIONA FOLEY - QUEENSLAND STATE LIBRARY | Brisbane, QLD, Australia
Artist Fiona Foley creates a highly political yet visually engaging artwork in Black Opium. 777 cast aluminium poppies, configured in an infinity symbol, highlight the use of opium given to Aboriginal workers during white settlement. Each stem is made out of 1 of 4 moulds, hand finished and arranged randomly. The installation adorns the atrium space of Queensland’s new State Library.
