clairemilnerart Happy #flamingofriday to celebrate the companion piece to this artwork being exhibited by @alphaainc during #artbasel and for being a winner of artivism. thanks to @oceanic.global for all the vital work they do to educate individuals on the critical issues impacting our oceans, providing them with solutions for driving positive change via the universal passions of art, music and emerging tech. πŸ‹πŸŒŠπŸ¦€πŸ¦ˆ 'symbiosis' oil on canvas. embellished with 1000 swarovski crystals. marine protected areas can provide long-term protection for "blue carbon" areas of coastal habitats and this painting draws attention to mangrove forests, one of the most undervalued ecosystems in the world. living at the water’s edge, mangroves play a vital part in trapping sediment from the land that would otherwise be washed out to sea. they absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide, thus decreasing the effects of global warming, and current studies have shown that they do this at ten times the rate of mature tropical forests, storing three to five times more carbon per equivalent area. it is imperative to include these areas as mpa’s and to restore and protect these critical ecosystems, as they support a huge diversity of seafood at capacities large enough to feed millions of people, especially in poor areas. in addition, mangroves offer a critical nursery for coral reef fish communities. they have a symbiotic relationship with coral reefs – the reef protects the coast where the mangroves grow from being eroded by the sea, and the mangrove forest traps sediment washed from the land that would otherwise smother the reef. in the same way, this painting has a symbiotic relationship with my painting entitled 'ocean rainforest' depicting sea turtles amongst a coral reef. the black and white panel highlights potential irreversible loss, a message given further emphasis in the crystal mosaic x on the face of the principal animal, which at once highlights its preciousness and draws attention to its fate if action is not taken. the ghostly female figure is an allegorical reminder that the future of the human race is inherently bound up with our treatment of the earth’s natural resources.

clairemilnerart Thrilled that my painting ‘ocean rainforest’ is a winner of the coral bleaching section of the @oceanic.global and @alphaainc #artivismchallenge. the judges included @susanrockefeller @dustinyellin aaron levi garvey, doumi busturia, @alexandrearrechea and @zarialynn oceanic global and alpha'a inc will exhibit this piece along with work from six categories in miami during art basel utilizing the visual arts to raise awareness about six critical issues impacting our ocean. πŸ™πŸ’™πŸŒŠπŸ‹ . about 'ocean rainforest' this painting highlights the devastating impact of coral bleaching. coral reefs are home to an estimated 25% of all marine life, and are nurseries for about a quarter of the ocean's fish. sea turtles, just one of the creatures to be found here, are one of earths most ancient creatures and have been around since the time of the dinosaurs. the critically endangered hawksbill turtle is less migratory and more reef-dependent. it is portrayed here within the black and white panel to simultaneously represent the bleaching of the reefs and potential irreversible loss. the crystal mosaic x on the face of the principal animal at once highlights its preciousness and draws attention to its fate. coral reefs form a barrier against storms and hurricanes, and are essential to the health of the oceans. roughly one-quarter of coral reefs worldwide are already considered damaged beyond repair, and two-thirds are under serious threat. nearly 90% of our reefs could be gone by 2050, eradicating a global source of food and livelihood if nothing is done to protect one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. the ghostly female figure in the painting is an allegorical reminder that our future is inherently bound up with our treatment of the earth's natural resources. . . . #oceanrainforest #coralbleaching #artivism #visualarts #awareness #ocean #oceanicglobal #alphaainc #exhibition #artbasel #miami #manawynwood #artbaselmiami #artivism #artbaselmiami2017 #artbaselmiamibeach #abmb #clairemilnerart #coralreefs #coral #seaturtles #hawksbillturtle #allegoricalpainting #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting watch @blue.planet.2 for more information on these critical issues. πŸŒŠπŸ’™

alphaainc We are thrilled to invite you to the unveiling of our latest exhibition, the artivism challenge, in partnership with oceanic global. the artivism challenge leverages the universal appeal and emotional power of art, to raise awareness for six critical issues impacting our ocean. emerging and established artists were encouraged to nominate an art piece that addresses one of the following issues: sea level rise, plastic pollution, overfishing, coral bleaching, deadlines and the need for more marine protected areas. a judging panel including dustin yellin, susan rockefeller, aaron levi garvey, doumi busturia, alexandre arrechea and zaria forman selected the winning pieces. come, discover and choose your favorite pieces which will be exhibited at our downtown location and all the profits will be benefiting oceanic global’s educational programs. december 3nd oceanic shoreline cleanup december 6th oceanic + alpha’a + house of yes party december 7th alpha'a + oceanic launch party at exhibit space #alphaa #artivism #oceanicglobal #ocean #oceanconservation #art #contemporaryart

clairemilnerart Huge thanks to @oceanic.global for featuring my work ahead of the #artivismchallenge during art basel miami, in collaboration with @alphaainc . what’s your background as an artist, and how would you describe your style? . i have a degree in graphic design and typography, have worked as an illustrator, studied ancient mosaic techniques and eventually combined all of these skills into my own style as an artist. i work in themed collections with art historical references that simultaneously focus on topical issues relating to the environment, our place within it and encroachment upon it. the effects of humanity are implicit within my paintings, even when the human figure is absent or takes a secondary precedence. . see the full interview on the current via the oceanic global website. πŸ’™πŸŒŠ . as part of a global series of beach & shoreline cleanups, the next one will be taking place on sunday, december 3rd, 2017 in miami! @oceanic.global will be doing something for our oceans a few days before art basel miami. if you would like to join them from 2pm-4pm on a day of biscayne bay cleaning at albert pallot park - every hand helps! . . . #oceanicglobal #thecurrent #artbasel #miami #manawynwood #artbaselmiami #beachcleanup #risingsealevels #keystonespecies #artistfeature #alphaainc #collaboration #artistinterview #arthistory #environment #environmentalart #artivist #artivism #saveourseas #oceanic #stopsucking #emergingartist #clairemilnerart #artblog #artfair #abmb #miamiartweek #artmiamifairs #wynwoodmiami

jksternlicht #thanksgivingthoughts: gratitude is more than a feeling or a verbal expression of appreciation - gratitude is a practice, and it must be practiced every day. if we appreciate the life we live, we must do everything we can to protect it and our future. this means protecting and maintaining our health, our home, the land we walk on, the water we drink, the food we eat, the air we breathe. each day should be greeted with not mind only to what we can get out of our short time on this planet, but what we can give back so that this planet is as enjoyable and magical for our tomorrow as it is for our today. the choices we make are critical - little decisions add up to create massive outcomes. what will you do today to show your gratitude towards our life support system, our blue-green spaceship spinning in the lifeless void? #ourchoicesmatter #oceanicglobal @oceanic.global #gratitude #appreciation #mindfulness #actionsandwords #intentionandpurpose #conservation #1planet #1people #1world #natureisart #miami #sunrisesky #sunrises

jksternlicht #topictuesday - overfishing is a major issue threatening not only specific species, but the health of our oceans and our future on this planet. when we put excessive pressure on a species of fish, to use as food or in various other applications, the effects ripple out through the whole food chain, leaving the oceans and hurting people across the world. in partnership with alpha'a & artivism, we are working with artists to showcase the issues facing our beautiful planet, and educate the people who can make a difference- you. can you name an overfished species near you? comment below. #ourchoicesmatter #oceanicglobal #artivism #savetheoceans #savetheoceansavetheworld #oceans #conservation #fishing #boat #sunrise #oceansunrise #california #themoreyouknow #bogedabay #sonomacounty
