Remnants and more art by Jillian Ballas

Remnants , 2020
h = 150 cm
Plaster and aluminium mesh

The inspiration for Remnants (2020) is taken from the skeletal remains of trees following a forest fire. The Artist describes Remnants as a representation of the ‘loss of life and ecosystems that occur in the wake of a natural disaster.’ Clustered in groups of six, the bone-white forms bring the barren landscape to the gallery. Evoking a sense of melancholy, Remnants urges the viewer to remember the bleaching of life that occurs when a wildfire visits an area’. Through subtle symbolism or haunting imagery, Jillian Ballas’ work aims to leave the viewer with a sense of urgency and desire for change.

What level of responsibility do we have in climate disasters that have occurred across the globe?
