I was just introduced to the work of the amazing Bruno Torfs. He lives in Marysville, Australia and creates art that is inspired by and inhabits nature.Â The slide show is truly beautiful.
But then as I was looking through the site, I came upon this.
On Saturday the 7th of February 2009 The Township of Marysville and the surrounding area was ravaged by bushfires and is still in a state of emergency. Firstly I would like to say that Bruno and his family are safe and well.
Unfortunately the family home and the gallery have been destroyed. The sculpture garden has sustained severe damage, but hopefully a good portion of the sculptures will be able to be salvaged.
I feel as if I just learned that there was a real fairyland and it’s been razed.
