Stephen Michael King - KOALA ARK


Stephen Michael King


Exhibition dates 18 May - 1 July

The 2019 and 2020 bushfires affected homes, communities and the natural environment more than any before. After the fires, Stephen Michael King was inspired to create a book about the time and its effect on our local wildlife. This exhibition features original artworks from the book, 'Koala Ark'.

"Koalas like to sleep and eat. They’re vulnerable. In Koala Ark, I made Koala the hero. His character reflects a lot of what I observed in the people around me. Sitting beside the tragedy and heartache of the fires was bravery and humanity at its best."
