Exhibition Description

My exhibition shows 2 of the most pristine areas on the planet, Scoresby Sound and the Jokusarlon Lagoon in Iceland. I visited Greenland by ship for 12 days to areas with no trace of humans except 5-6 bones from the Thor people. Our ship visited uncharted fjords, the home to thousands of icebergs. This is the only place I have ever experienced total silence. No 2 icebergs are the same and I fell in love every day with the colours and textures. Jokusarlon icebergs slowly make their way to the Atlantic Ocean where they are pummelled back into H2O. These regions are the opposite end of the planet so not many of us visit Scoresby Sound. I believe we need to show people the melting ice. I exhibited my work in Auckland in June 2017 and sold 6 works. My work is signed and in editions of 5. I complimented my exhibition with a bespoke limited edition book.
I hope you will visit the Winkel Gallery in Clovelly during the festival, bus stop and cafe right there! I look forward to seeing you.
