I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Artist Spotlight: John Guy Petruzzi

Artist and naturalist John Guy Petruzzi explores issues of climate change, declining biodiversity and habitat loss through a series of intense watercolours. Working on synthetic paper, traditional pigments take on new meaning, reflecting a layered and illusory experience that parallels the jarring environmental imbalance with which Petruzzi’s work is concerned. As he explains:

“On synthetic paper water evaporates slowly, allowing ephemeral pools, laden with organic tension, to be suspended and preserved. A disharmony ripples through these fragile compositions, not unlike our natural world, centering on a collective experience of transformation, loss, mystery, and awe.”
