Joanne McFadyen I Cardboard Drought

Between Bald and Bowden

In 'Cardboard Drought' Joanne McFadyen transfers the technique of French polishing onto cardboard packaging.

McFadyen tells a narrative of climate change by using upcycled materials to highlight the local and regional impacts of drought.

In cardboard she offers a glimpse of both landscape and El Nino weather patterns, with inspired imagery from Strathewen.
