SONIA MARTIGNON

 

The Charred Mosaic of an Ancient Landscape

 

105 x 81       Acrylic and pyrography on hand-cut plywood

 

This artwork documents a pocket of North Australian tropical woodland using acrylic, pyrography and hand-cut edges to create a portal into this unique landscape. A mosaic of burn scars adorns the land, a familiar pattern caused by frequent dry season wildfires.  Visually striking, it is a paradox of destruction and regeneration. Endemic cycads, ancient fire-hardy species, sit resiliently in the blackened earth.

Choose the Future: Electrify!

 

62 x 15                       Ceramic

 

The future world is reliant on electrifying our grids as soon as possible with renewable energy sources and phasing out fossil fuels. We must decarbonise the world to achieve a net zero in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to have any future at all. Just as a tree or plant needs wind, sunshine, and water to grow, we too will need to enhance our harnessing of these resources to build our capacity to cope with more than twice the electrical energy we use today. Plug in like a plant and choose a better future.

Breeze

 

150 x 120                Charcoal, ink, rice paper, Kozo paper on board

 

Breeze is constructed using layers of mulberry and rice paper, bound together with rice paste. Each layer responds to the one previous until a kind of aggregate image is formed, showing both the history of its making and a final posture.
