This original artwork is part of the Presence of Nature 2020 Series by artist Gitte Backhausen.
This body of work tells the story of beauty arisen from devastation and darkness, relating to the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires, so very close to the artist’s home on the South Coast of NSW. It’s a story of light, hope and nature’s strength.
“I find the visual elements of the devastation from the fires beautiful. Looking past the story of destruction and sadness, I see nature’s incredible power to create change (whether we like it or not) and the immense beauty of deterioration. Bring the strength of nature into your everyday life with this artwork and enjoy the power it gives you, knowing what falls will rise yet again.” Gitte Backhausen
