One of Australia’s most remarkable natural features is the Great Barrier Reef, which has inspired Kelly-Anne Love’s new series of paintings. The breathtaking beauty of the world’s largest coral reef, comprised of literally thousands of unique reef systems and corals and several hundred tropical sun-soaked islands, is home to an abundance of marine life.
“Full of colour, coral and sea life, we are truly blessed to have one of the biggest and most diverse reefs in the world. It is home to 1600 different species which means I am never at a loss for creativity.” explains Kelly-Anne Love
Kelly-Anne’s aim for this series is to draw attention to the beauty of the reef and bring about awareness of the need to protect it. The highly vulnerable Great Barrier Reef is currently at grave risk. Over the past thirty years it has lost half its coral cover, pollution has caused deadly starfish outbreaks, and climate change has produced horrific coral bleaching. Coastal development is also a significant contributor. “That’s why we need to act quickly and fight for the conservation of the Great Barrier Reef.
