On this page I will post regular pics of the processes I go through to create each piece.

Check back regularly…

This huge piece, when completed will be my take on the world map. I am hoping to visually highlight in my own style the fragility of our beautiful planet. The effects of climate change and the way we as a species are affecting the arteries of our world is terrifying and we all have a duty to change our attitudes and daily habits.

Here the magnificent rivers are representing the arteries of the planet, however they also appear as fragile cracks in the land masses.

In this image I have applied masking fluid to represent the accelerating melting of the polar ice caps. The worst offending nations are represented with more and longer drips…

Here I have represented the major ocean currents in masking fluid. The ocean currents are the planets conveyor belt and are crucial to our climate. Healthy oceans pump rich organism rich waters around the globe like a living organism.

I have now added the oceans, I have used Maldon sea salt to indicate the fault lines along tectonic plates. I have tried to indicate the deep water trenches with darker pigments and lighter pigment for the qwarmer and shallower bodies of water. When dry I will remove the masking fluid that indicates the ocean currents.

Adding the continental detail is a stark reminder of the effects of deforestation. Satelite images from just 15 years ago show how aggressively we are depleting the lungs of our planet.

‘Fragile Earth’ just needs stringing and will be in @ The Makery gallery in the morning. Thank you for looking and let's all do our little bit to protect our beautiful planet xx
