"I remember the first time I visited The Great Barrier Reef in the 1980s, the sensory overload of colour, shape and movement. It was awe-inspiring, and it was Australian.

As an Australian printmaker who has lived near the coast most of his life, the sea has shaped my life and inspires my creative practice. In Disappearing Reef I seek to draw attention to the significant human impact on the Great Barrier Reef. The serene thalo blue invokes the once pristine reef drawing our attention to the spectre of coral bleaching and all of the ensuing consequences for the reef as an ecosystem. We must act to mitigate climate change.

Once the coral is dead, the reef will die and erode — habitat will be destroyed... Time is running out."
