'Bright Skies Ahead' is a new artwork by Carley Cornelissen, an emerging Australian artist based in Brisbane, Queensland. Her work is beautiful, colourful and full of energy. Her strong feelings towards the way humans treat animals inspire her to highlight the influence of human population and greed on the environment. Each piece she creates holds a special meaning, hidden in the flowers, the insects, birds or animals. Carley’s pieces contain references to endangered fauna, extinct animals and wildlife at risk.
Of this series Carley has said "A lot of my work is centre’s around placing endangered animals in idyllic environments where they are safe from any human involvement. The rhino was the first ever creature I used this idea with back in 2012 and has remained in my practice ever since."
Carley likes to use her work to get people to think about how their actions affect the environment. Carley uses patterns and bold colours to provide a glimmer of hope and to help people realise that we as individuals can make a difference. She also uses transfers as she feels the image represents the fragility of the situation, it shows how endangered species are here but also almost gone.
