The Four Invitations Of Syzygium Moorei exhibition by local artist Dean Power reveres the Coolamon Tree and Byron Bay landscape.
The Four Invitations of Syzygium Moorei is a series of paintings by local artist Dean Power, revering the Coolamon Tree (Syzygium Moorei) and it’s divine feminine presence in Byron Bay landscape. Despite being an iconic species with a natural range from Mudgeeraba to Richmond River, very few locals know The Coolamon Tree well. Perhaps even fewer have seen it flowering. The artist throws down a challenge “I defy anyone who has seen a Coolamon flowering to find a more feminine tree on the planet”. The work invites viewers to consider the influence the landscape and the tree has for those visiting or living the Byron Bay region. “We as humans tend to try to seperate ourselves from nature, to see ourselves as something different. Living in this powerful landscape comes with it’s own challenges and it’s entirely possible the Coolamon has some hints about how to live here elegantly.”
