Cultural Capital for Westconnex: Oysters Eating Rainbows
01 January 2020

Where the Karingal Underpass in Kingsgrove, Sydney was once a featureless pedestrian thoroughfare, it is now the permanent home of Emily Crockford’s vivid double mural, Oysters Eating Rainbows.

The project was commissioned by Westconnex (in partnership with Cultural Capital) as part of their Public Art Program Canal to Creek, which runs between St Peters and Beverly Hills. The mural is a homage to this regions local ecology - from kookaburras and tawny frog mouths to the yabbies and oysters that populate the intersecting waterways.

Emily pays particularly attention, with her trademark dot-and-dash patterning, to the endangered species that live among the sprawl: the Regent Honeyeater takes particular pride of place.
