Have you had a chance to check out Biodiversity Barbados’ Virtual Art Exhibition?

The Ministry of Environment is delighted to once again be working with artists in Barbados to highlight biodiversity and the environment on International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB).  IDB was celebrated on Sunday May 22nd under the theme is ‘Building a Shared Future for All Life’ with the Ministry’s second annual Virtual Art Exhibition.  This year’s Art Exhibit features 30 pieces from different local artists, highlighting the theme of ‘Nature’, and throughout the months of May and June, Biodiversity Barbados will be highlighting the contributing artists and their art.

Today’s work is this mixed media sculpture by Adrian Burnett (@dabudzman246) entitled ‘The Portal’. This very tactile piece showcases the myriad of textures created by nature. Each piece of the sculpture can be transformed, almost transported from its current natural, raw state to a refined, utilitarian state through human hands. We see this process in action in the piece in the form of the rope stemming, perhaps being birthed from the mahogany pod.

Tune in again tomorrow for our next highlighted artist and art combo.
