Renowned local artist Lyn Graham has donated three gorgeous artworks from her Disappearing Skylines series to the annual South Brisbane Greens art raffle. Each is valued at up to $2000.
These pieces show landscapes and neighbourhoods changing with the impacts of a changing climate and development. Lyn writes, “These three paintings are part of a series called Disappearing Skylines. One day, when I was on Teewah Beach looking up at the coastal dunes, I realised they reminded me of the rusting roofs in West End. The beautiful corrugated iron roofs are disappearing, making way for high-rise towers, just as the coastal dunes are eroding, the deserts are changing, the forests are vanishing and the oceans are rising. I have tried to capture the beauty of the skylines we love. They are disappearing as the climate changes and development ramps up”.
The paintings are oil on linen. Each measures 90 x 60cms (perfect for your living room!). They are stretched and ready to hang or they can be framed by their new owners.
- 1st Prize: Simpson Desert
- 2nd Prize: Pacific Ocean
- 3rd Prize: West End Roof
