Shackleton created a 50-foot-long mural for her public exhibtion at the Art Gallery of Northumberland. The painting depicts the lasting effects of climate change in Canada. Images of melting glaciers float amongst local architectural elements, which are met by the scorched limbs of a burning forest. Complete with the use of her signature drip painting technique, Shackleton transforms the Gallery’s walls into a fully immersive encounter.

This artwork reminds us that we are all playing with fire. It is a call for action and a stark prediction for Canadian environmental futures.
