Is a shirt? Is it an animal? No, its a flumpy!

What on earth is a flumpy? Well, if you were to check out the Lismore Regional Gallery you would see them hanging around the 24:7 gallery (the front window). They are local artist ines latest exploration an exhibition of concern for the environment and the animals in it.

Local artist ine presents an installation called Flumpy Refuses To Get Up at Lismore Regional Gallery until March 19. The installation is created from recycled unspun cotton, wire netting, aluminium foil and wire ducting.

By using recycled cotton as skin for the eviscerated, animalesque forms, seemingly overcome by incapacity, subjection and defencelessness, I comment on this highly political crops use of exorbitant amounts of chemicals and water for its production, said ine.

The artist reflects on the difficult position of wildlife in a world of rapid development and seeming insensitivity to other life forms around us.

ine feels that this use and abuse attitude towards creatures becomes our own very real deep loss as our ethics buckle and our biodiversity dwindles.
