Diane Keating presents a new series of oil paintings highlighting her passion for the natural environment and horror at seeing the effects of climate change on remote areas. These paintings bear witness to the spiritual and physical void left by logging to fauna, flora and to our precious waterways.

“It leaves me sad and frustrated that those in power are not acting with the necessary will and resources to mitigate the effects of climate change. Our ancient fragile landscape is suffering and needs to be nurtured to sustain human life, fauna and flora.”

In this body of work, Keating depicts endangered environments that are not always accessible to the average person who may never be able to experience such special places. Our protection is needed for these places to survive the onslaught of so-called development which results in only short-term monetary gain. The loss of place and the warming and degradation of our oceans and its people diminishes us as caring human beings.

Diane Keating is a Melbourne-based painter with a Bachelor of Education majoring in Art from Deakin University.

She has exhibited frequently in solo and group exhibitions locally and nationally since the 1990s.

Keating primarily focuses on environmental and political issues in her practice.
