About the artwork:

33° S, 152° E (Lambton Park) is an exploration of the interconnectedness between art, environment, the process of the art and the artist themself. Depicted is the topography of the home of a spotted gum tree, whose bark was made into watercolour paint and then used to illustrate this piece. This homage to hometown and personal growth as an individual emphasizes our ties to origins, a reminder that no matter what form we take on, we consist largely of where we come from.

About the artist:

I am a Newcastle local pursuing a postgraduate study focused on how I can incorperate my local environment into my art. I create paints out of foraged berries, nuts, bark, minerals and plants.
