“Care for the natural world is an ongoing theme in Graeme and Melissa’s life and work.  Individually and collaboratively, their art is driven by a reverence for wild places and a desire to protect them. This piece is an observation on the effects of climate change on the world’s oceans and, specifically, corals – vibrant, living things that are especially vulnerable to bleaching when water is too warm or acidic for them to live. Often called “rain forests of the ocean,” coral reefs sustain an incredibly diverse population of marine life. With current CO2 emissions, we are on track to lose these irreplaceable ecosystems in our lifetimes. Hopefully, awareness and action will prevent this sad end.”
