SUSAN FARQUHAR’S PAPER WORKS recreate epicormic growth as inspiration for change amid current extreme climate events. This exhibition is a visual response to the catastrophic fires that raged through South Australia late 2019 into 2020. Photos and online communications with those facing the firestorm drove this group of paper constructs on canvas and wood. In the aftermath tiny spots of bright green leaf and floral growth the epicormic adaptation to fire dotted the blackened ash laden landscape. Regrowth begins but are we so epicormic?
