Endcount Raises Awareness for Endangered Species
Last Thursday marked a milestone for the Endcount project, an new media art collaboration between Aurelie Perthuis (Lily) and Joe Bramwell-Smith designed to focus attention on those species dangerously close to extinction as a result of poaching, over fishing and destruction of habitat.
The Exhibition was a huge success with over 200 people attending the opening night and 8 out 12 works being sold before the end of the first official day of the launch.
This is an important body of work, not only for the subject and mission behind the project but for the unique method & process used in Joe and Lilly's collaboration that combines the textures and vibrant colours of paint on canvas, powered by data driven algorithms that represent the statics of each of the spices in decline.
The works range in Price from $3,300 - $8,000 and part of the proceeds of sale will go to supporting charities working to reverse these species in decline.
If you missed the opening night you can get a taste below, but to get a true feel for the quality and uniqueness of this body of work, you have to see them in the flesh at the Piermarq gallery, Suite 48 Jones Bay Wharf, Pyrmont. Best to contact Rob or Justin from Piermarq to book in a time.
