(4) Julie Milton – Challenging Times


About this Artwork

Challenging times’ is a digital collage using a process of layering and blending imagery. The work is in response to the image of the sailing ship ‘Half Moon’ captained by the English explorer, Henry Hudson, who sailed the east coast of Greenland in the 1600’s attempting to find a route to Asia.
The image inspired me to think about the ‘old’ world with its’ promise for new beginnings and discovery of distant treasures contrasted with the ‘new’ world and the troubling times we now face. That is, global warming, pandemics, fractured regimes, over population, extinction of flora and fauna species, et cetera
