Mixed media artist and art tutor Megan Huffadine lives in Bannockburn. History, the environment and the rituals that bind society form the background to her work.

The Lure series of sculptures with their circular forms, swirling marks and gold leaf interiors reference gold pans, mining maps, the lure of gold and all this implies.

Synonyms for Lure; tempt, attract, beguile, seduce, thus the story of gold is told.

The moth works are a recognition of the importance of moths in the environment. Sixty percent (12,000 species) of New Zealand’s 20,000 invertebrate species, including moths, are found in Otago.

This richness is a reflection of the complex geology and wide range of environments to be found in Central Otago, which is one of the driest, coldest, hottest parts of New Zealand. The moths found in Central Otago include flightless moths and day time flying moths. Otago has around 80 different species of moths. A large number of these are found in Central Otago.

The colour used in these moth works relate to species which can be found locally.
