About The Artwork

Our environmental crisis is global. We all love the turtles in beautiful Hawaii, unfortunately, they suffered appallingly in the recent Kilauea volcanic eruption and lava flow. So, our hearts went out to these amazing little creatures, that – along with so many other creatures in our oceans – are also battling with plastics and nanoparticles in their environment. However, this artwork evokes a moment of joy in the turtle's life and is our wish for their future. The poem inspired by the artwork is by Pearl Forster Hawaiian Turtle Dreaming Into the trance of the golden realm drift the gentle dreamers. One by one their beings resonate in the fields of a sonorous creation. To the other transceivers in all the world’s oceans they’re singing their newest psalm; it’s a narrative celebration for their hatchlings coming home. The sun’s yellow beams filter down to the deep conjoining the song’s vibrations. The crystalline colors in all Neptune’s Kingdom lend their hues and their harmonies to the madrigal’s procession of life. Embedded in the beauty of their story are memories of events recent and past, when tremors brought terrors and tragedies; when the seabed heaved and was ripped apart by incinerating lava explosions. Extrasensory perception was the saving grace for so many. Its prescience gave precious seconds. In an instant the elders were around the young. Pushing, propelling with urgent cries they swam for their lives to the surface. They remember through tearful, smiling hearts how the great tide of human compassion crashed all around them in a roaring rush; people risking their limbs and their lives to pull them, exhausted, clear of the boiling sea. The mourning calls of the rescued for the buried ones left behind soon turned to joyful surprise. They saw a glow on the distant horizon as the departing spirits rose. Then came strengthening strains of celestial singing. The earth and the air were radiating the chorus to the turtles dreaming song. And all around the planet each lifeform had paused and was listening intently. One by one they took up the story; one by one they transmitted the sounds. Soon the whole world was a conduit for the turtles dreaming song.

‘Beauty awakens the soul to act’ Dante Alighieri. For many years my art has explored the interconnection between our consumer ideology and fragile ecologies. During this time, I have drawn upon scientific, philosophical, literary research, and early photographic processes as well as traditional art practices to highlight our natural world’s plight, resilience, and beauty. The artworks in each series synergize – often in sculptural form - recycled consumer and natural elements. Threads of metaphoric content connect each series and consider the long-term impact of urban development within those ecosystems. While art pieces often used to lament our consumer-conditioned Western values; for example, the work, 'One Earth, Our Earth', I am now profoundly inspired and driven by our human potential and the rapidly emerging caring and willingness of many, to cooperatively innovate environmental solutions. Thus my work considers, anticipates; dissolves existing boundaries, and celebrates! Kaye E Forster
