Louise Morgan, detail:Survival Suicide II,  2014


I took the opportunity of this group show to test out some concepts and new pathways that have taken residence in my mind for a while now. This step towards a more illustrational style for me is the product of my concerns for environmental pressures and a hope to communicate with the broader community about these issues. For this group show I started producing a small series of drawings that explore the unforgiving consequences of evolutionary defences in Australian native and invasive species. My focus lies particularly in the conflict that ensues the survival of these species through the use of statistics pertaining to breeding cycles and a growing understanding of the fragile nature of Australian ecosystems.
