The work in Fintan Magee‘s “The Big Dry” explores the artist’s personal experiences during Australia’s “Millennium drought.” The show starts at Thinkspace Gallery today and runs through June 23. Magee was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
The “Millenium drought” is “said to be the worst scarcity of the resource in the country’s history since its settlement in the 18th Century,” a statement says. “The exhibition uses this personal framework to explore larger global issues such as climate change, water usage, and environmental destruction, animating these severe concerns through a localized context to make them all the more humanly relatable and immediate.”
