2023 SWELL ARTWORK – Slump

With the wind oozing out of the world economy and courses being charted through the impending dystopia, we are left challenging our entrenched methods of remaining competitive. Our youth, cloaked in Hi-viz uniforms, fight daily on the front line of the war on satisfaction. Although exhausted and daunted, ‘tradies’ put their faith in us all to create a more sustainable version of “The Lucky Country”.
