Mining scars: occupation continues (art)

Jacky Green wants people to know what the big mining companies are getting away with on his land – land that’s far away from the eyes of the mainstream media and the dominant methods of communication. And that’s how his art becomes resistance and gives voice to an unvoiced people and to a cause.

Mining in Australia’s Gulf Country has diverted a key river, while the Owners of the land were not consulted. Green’s paintings capture the cultural destruction and contamination inflicted by both the mining corporations and the government giving them the go ahead.
