the Island series
The Island series depict a variety of isolated islands, surveying a range of wild and domestic habitations supporting native birds and animals of Aotearoa. Although they are all devoid of human life, many display signs of human activity, habitation and history. The paintings can be viewed as a theatrical tableau, a reflective entry into our lands, highlighting mankind’s complex relationship between available space and the ecology of its flora, fauna and the all encompassing ocean.
My Battlelines series began with a concern for the fate of our native New Zealand animals, which are being decimated by predators ( brought to New Zealand by our forefathers; the rabbit, possum, hedgehog, stoat and the rat). By the year 2050 New Zealand has pledged to completely eradicate these introduced animals that have been deemed ‘pest’.
Every year or two I set myself a side project, a self-guided curiosity, which can take a few months to complete. These amusements often go on to inform and invigorate my daily practice of painting, expanding upon my current concepts and leading to new directions. These projects began with my Master of Fine Arts degree in 2011.
