M.irbyana_01.08, 2012, donna davis, pigment print, 60x60cm

Works from the M.irbyana Project explore the struggle between native and introduced flora species: reflecting on the aesthetic and perceived value of flora in the context of our native ecology.

Plants and humans are intrinsically connected both sharing a vulnerability to environmental conditions: ecosystems such as the endangered M.irbyana Forest of South East Queensland, plays a vital role in the health of our planet and inturn to human well-being.

M.irbyana_01.08 explores the idea of cloning, preservation and fragility.
