Although I have blogged this before, as Dijanne Cevaal’s blog today refers to this show www.origidij.blogspot.com I think it is time to show this image of my piece in it agai, as it does not show in any of her pics of the gallery, but I am assured it IS there! and my catalogue statement is printed in full on her page.
Opening last week at the MINERVA gallery, Wellington, the general theme of the exhibition is clear – that changes in the many elements that make up ‘climate’ there will be new or ongoing effects on population, economic activity, transportation, communication, natural ecosystems and much, much more. Individually we are all very aware that for Man to thrive within these altered environments will require huge attitudinal and behavioural changes, and economic investment on a large scale.
Based on the cartographic symbol for cyclone (hurricane in the northern hemisphere) the abstract design symbolizes the swirl of expert opinions and data, seemingly conflicting with each other, and often confusing, but all drawing our attention to the effects of climate change around the planet, and the urgent issues with which we are faced.
