mixed-media

Description

'‘Bait’', '‘Hook’', and '‘Unseen’' are small-scale lino prints on rice paper with collage images of wildlife.

'‘Overboard’' is a 24'' 18'' collage depicting a ship hauling an over-flowing load of endangered fish in a handmade net.

'‘Malherbe’s Parakeet’' are 50 collages on circular tags that depict the plumage of the Malherbe’s Parakeet, a bird indigenous to New Zealand that has been hunted to near extinction by rats that only inhabit the land because they jumped from a ship and swam to shore, reeking havoc on the nests of the Parakeets and plunging their population to as little as 50 individuals. Sadly, this is not an isolated occurence.
