These new works by Erin Forsyth, carefully researched over 18 months, illustrate key characteristics of threatened species of land and forest, the ecological relationships sustaining them and which, in turn, they sustain.

Aotearoa New Zealand is a special place. As the last major land mass occupied by humans, the natural environment and biological diversity therein is both unique and taonga. However the high rate of endemism is increasingly overshadowed by trends toward extinction.

These new works by Erin Forsyth, carefully researched over 18 months, illustrate key characteristics of threatened species of land and forest, the ecological relationships sustaining them and which, in turn, they sustain.

The exhibition marks a pivotal time in environmental history, opening on the first anniversary of the New Zealand Government ratifying the Paris Agreement to mitigate climate change.

Part of Artweek Auckland 2017.
