In drawing painting and printmaking I explore the landscapes seascapes and islands of the NZ Northland Coast. The exploration of geography reveals that isolation informs identity and affects habitation patterns, history, perception and memory.

The connection to the sea is a vital one for transport and trade and many islands still maintain a sense of wilderness as not all have been farmed and some are barely rocks.

The shared memory of the place we call home is a fragmented one and the pieces of the landscape reflect a uniquely individual experience and relationship to landforms based on our collective history of use and recreation. Jackie Bowring landscape architect states that “landscapes are soaked in memory, they represent who we are".

However between the earth and sky exists the realm of the horizon, the imaginary line and space between two dimensions, the earth plane and the sky plane. Within that volume of space the islands are scattered outward from the land and appear as specks on the horizon.

The formal monumentality of the hills, islands and volcanic forms reflects Abel Tasman’s view of NZ in 1641 as “a large land uplifted high “and at sea level many islands such as the 70m cliffs of the Poor Knights appear like vast cathedrals of rock. The light, shapes and tones of the rock faces and islands change with the passing of time through the day from morning to evening and through the seasons of the years and provide a never ending source of inspiration for visual reflection
