John Wolseley and Mulkun Wirrpanda: Molluscs / Maypal and the warming of the seas

John Wolseley’s 2016 gift to Geelong Gallery of his 10 metre long, six panel panoramic watercolour The pearl fisher’s voyage from Ise Shima to Roebuck Bay, 1985–89, is the catalyst for an immersive installation in which Wolseley and senior Yolgnu artist and clan leader Mulkun Wirrpanda, extend their decade-long collaboration. Both artists share a profound sense of the beauty and fragility of the earth and its ecosystems, and in this project their works meditate especially on the mollusc as a powerful indicator of changing oceanic conditions and water systems. Part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019
