In recent times Aotearoa NZ came through a time of restrictions due to the Covid19 pandemic. During this short period many signs of change appeared around us; increased birdlife in the CBD, silence in the absence of traffic, whales and an Ocean Sunfish took advantage of a quietened harbour, reconnection with each other, using less, needing less, wasting less, pollution was at an all time low.
There was a silver-lining to this lockdown.
It appears we can pull back, slow ourselves, re-focus and enjoy a more realistic pace. We realised we don't need the hurried and frantic 'grasping-for-more' kind of life to which we are habituated.
Condolences to those that lost loved ones and to those that have suffered as a result of Covid19 virus.
This exhibition uncovers faces in the forest.
Opening at 2pm on Saturday December 14th at PATAKA 14 Parumoana Street, Porirua. Aotearoa.
Delivering masks rendered from palms and harakeke James Harcourt encourages us to understand the plant kingdom. We get our oxygen, shelter, fuel, food, medicines, oil, rubber and delight from plants. Therefore we can honestly say "In Plants We Trust".
Works are for sale and a short performance will ignite FACE PALM all welcome.
On occasion I will drop something here. A new project or a painting.
