“The climate crisis is not ‘gender neutral’. Women and girls experience the greatest impacts of climate change, which amplifies existing gender inequalities and poses unique threats to their livelihoods, health, and safety.” – UN Women

A Vision of What Was Lost

Artist: Jackie Reid​
Location: Zonta Club of Armidale, District 24, Australia​

Witnessing the devastation of the Australian landscape that was caused by the fires of 2019/2020 was heartbreaking.  I was told:  No one will want to buy this painting – it is too depressing.

​But I didn’t paint it to sell. I hoped that it would provoke an emotional response and help initiate vital discussions about climate change.​

Medium: Acrylic aand mixed media on canvas
