“Whenua is my love letter to the wilderness of Aotearoa. The images have come from my personal explorations and observations of various landscapes. I am drawn to places that feel wild and uninhabitable, but when you peer closer, vibrant ecosystems thrive and intricate patterns are revealed. Places where lichen and epiphytes coat ancient trees and velvety mosses cover boulders in glacier-carved valleys. Where fine layers of strata are exposed as the sea erodes the cliffs and rich seaweed forests sway beneath the surf.”
This pop-up exhibition will feature original paintings for Pauanesia’s 2020 Aotearama Calendar, as well as new originals, prints and calendars.
