“and/or”—Broken Hill 2002

Painting by Victor Gordon
Oil on canvas
30.5 x 25.5 cm

This image epitomizes (for me) the manner in which we Australians approach plant conservation and regeneration. I actually witnessed this in Broken Hill where council workers, after having removed the tree guard to lop the tree down, replaced it to protect the stump!
