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.”
