When I asked Ashlyn about her major 2 months ago, she basically gave me two words. Birds and un-natural. She had come across this idea, that birds like the Ibis, have had to adapt to the Australian lifestyle and by lifestyle I mean our lack of lifestyle. If you said the word Ibis, you would automatically think of the scavenging birds we see digging through bins. Ashlyn has captured these birds in their raw essense however, showing the true part of how they have had to adapt.
‘western culture poisons indigenous lifestyles. And how the indigenous population adapts to our ways of living.’
Her works are big and play on common truths about life and nature. Take a look at her latest works!
