Robbie van Hemert, Natural History Illustrator and artist, has launched her idea of a Land Biography.
Robbie’s concept of a Land Biography is aimed at creating a lasting visual record of significant Australian country.
She recognises the importance of the Caroona region as a highly productive food growing region and sees the initiative of the community to create a blockade in 2008 as changing the place of agriculture in Australia forever. She sees the purpose of the Land Biography as raising public awareness to the significance of this region to our food and fibre production.
The Liverpool Plains is well known for its exceptional soils, reliable rainfall and water resources which makes this region a strategic area in Australia for food production.
The first Land Biography in the series, entitled the Majestic Foodplains Project will be a two year rigorous research program, followed by a visual art representation of the significant yet threatened Australian food producing Liverpool Plains Region of NSW.
Robbie is at present seeking support and sponsorship for her project so please read the attached and contact Robbie directly if you have any questions or are able to assist. The Caroona Coal Action Group and SOS Liverpool Plains feel the concept is a wonderful way to help us get our message out to the wider community and we see the project as a very positive initiative and support Robbie’s ambitious project.
