Kalgoorlie Heartwalk

“Golden”

To be golden, by definition, is to possess gold-like qualities; be that the colour, brightness, lustre or immense value of gold.

This piece explores beauty and value, reflecting on the precious metal that Kalgoorlie is famous for, but I hope it also reminds us of the great value in the many naturally occurring wonders that the goldfields have to offer; both precious metals, and native flora alike.

The flourishing bouquet includes a selection of wildflowers found in the region that are all either iconic to the area, classified as rare or endangered, recently discovered, or considered to be valuable natural resources. It is these unique qualities, along with their delicate beauty and striking colours that I believe makes these flowers precious, worth celebrating, and truly ‘golden’.
