Renaissance of Mother Gaia

Jacquie believes colour is the universal language of emotions; it is light and energy, an electric current to the human brain, known to possess healing properties to change our thoughts and the way we feel. This mural speaks of regeneration and the power of resilience through a year of deep challenges. Through experiences of loss, grief, and uncertainty of the future, we also find ourselves at the wake of a new light and social consciousness. She hopes this mural serves as visual therapy to encourage wellness and mental wellbeing.

Artist: Jacquie Comrie
