Dusky Sound Forest Reflections, 2015
830 x 3,090 mm, framed
My work draws attention to the interrelationship between the land and sea. Fiordland is, after all, one continuous water-cycle ecosystem. Deluged by New Zealand’s highest annual rainfall, taninstained freshwater pours into the fiords. Less dense than seawater, this fresh influx lies on the surface, its colour filtering the amount of light that penetrates into the depths. The bright yellow/ green in the abstract reflections conjure up a feeling of the forest hovering over the sea’s surface.
