Order on demand - Fine art reproduction - Pyrrhic victory

Pyrrhic victory loosely translates to victory at great cost. It interrogates the idea of our growing demand for housing and retail development at the cost of the natural environment. It is a much needed conversation starter around the pressing topic of development, to raise awareness and increase engagement in finding the fine balance to prevent the continued loss of our natural environment.

When viewed from a distance is features a laughing kookaburra sitting on a log set against a wallpapered background. On closer inspection, the finer wing and body detail are revealed. The wing detail includes houses and skyscrapers, with cut down trees and native Australian animals on the body. It has a two-fold meaning, firstly symbolising the clearing of vegetation for our growing housing and retail space, as we are creating more homes and growing our economy for human needs, we are displacing wildlife forcing them out of their homes. And secondly the body can be seen as representing the earth and the wing as an artificial covering over it. The background patterning resembles wallpaper and is made up of Australian flora, with grevillea flowers and leaves, and dianella and eucalypt flowers. It represents the colonial legacy and how it influences our view of the natural world.
