The opening and catalogue launch of the “REJUVENATION”.
Come and witness cyanotype prints made by Australian and New Zealand artists responding to the theme REJUVENATION.
Gail Neumann and David Symons will be the hosts of this year’s event. Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart fellow CinAust Team members will join the event online.
Gullies and the Reef
The expanse of gully erosion due to land use (such as overgrazing and mining) causes fine sediment flow into river systems, which affects aquatic ecosystems and prevents sunlight from reaching the reef. This is one of the main contributors to poor water quality and declining health of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR).
Hope for rejuvenation
In recent years major research and restoration have been conducted to reduce soil erosion, sediment, and nutrients pesticides entering the rivers of the extensive gullies in a GBR catchment. There is much hope for the future rejuvenation of our life-giving waterways.
This artwork follows my involvement in The Wrong Kind of Beauty art-science collaboration focusing on soil erosion.
