She Is Rising


The tideline in this painting tracks the upward trajectory of the global mean sea level rise graph from NASA. The sea level data is visually mapped by the ocean tideline.

Inspired by data, this painting reflects the escalating impact of climate change on our world's waters. Another trend which recently hit headlines is that, fuelled by climate change, the world's oceans have broken temperature records every single day over the past year.

The ocean, often metaphorically linked with feminine power, embodies the nurturing yet formidable forces that shape our world. Just as the sea rises, so does the strength and resolve of women and gender-nonconforming people globally, pushing for a more just and equitable future against abuses. We resist and protest the degradation of our oceans by recognising our planetary interconnectedness.
