Join landscape artist Dean Power as he leads a discussion about his paintings, the iconic Coolamon Tree (Syzygium Moorei) and its feminine presence in the country around Byron Bay.
It's hard to spend more than 10 minutes in Byron Shire without noticing the power and beauty of the landscape. However, many locals are not entirely aware that the Coolamon is an iconic species endemic to a very small area from Mudgeeraba to Richmond River. Perhaps even fewer have seen it flowering.
The discussion will consider the influence the landscape and the tree has for those visiting or living the Byron Bay region.“We as humans tend to try to separate ourselves from nature, to see ourselves as something different. Living in this powerful landscape comes with its own challenges and opportunities. However, it seems entirely possible the Coolamon may inspire us all to live and be here elegantly."
Attend this interactive artist talk to discuss all these matters and more.
