My body of work represents my interest in the capacity of people to overcome adversity and consequently to renew themselves. Through the recurring reference to Banksia serrata, a plant craving fire for renewal, I have created an ongoing symbolism which represents this concept. My intention is to challenge the audience’s perspective in terms of whether adversity is destructive or a source of renewal, inviting a broader understanding of the world and our relation to the problems which arise from it.
