Was invited to participate in an international print exchange between several print studios around the Pacific Ocean, hence the title: Vie du Pacific. It opens this month in Brisbane, home to Migaloo Press which organised this project as part of the Print Council of Australia’s 50 years of print. It will tour 5 different venues in South East Queensland, then to participating countries: Japan, The Philippines, Canada, The USA, Vanuatu and Hawaii. We’ll have a chance to see it here in January at The Eastuary Arts Centre, Orewa. Will keep you posted!
The theme of the exhibition includes examining environmental concerns for the region. Climate change is one of biggest threats and the mighty mangrove has the amazing ability to reduce the effects of this, as well as having many social and economic benefits. Unfortunately, they are disappearing at an alarming rate across the Pacific due to the encroachment of residential and tourist developments along our seashores.
