Wishing World explores humanities’ wishes, hopes and desires and identification with the natural environment.  From the beginning of human history, nature has played a vital role in our creative expression.

“Our existence is linked to nature. We breathe the same air, drink the same water and feed from the land, and therefore we are part of nature. We all have our wishes and desires and we work hard towards achieving them. Through the exhibition, I hope that the viewers feel inspired and empowered to participate in the constructive survival of our planet and in particular our Australian nature, which is so unique and beautiful.”

Exhibiting artist, Liesbeth Pockett
