Opening event Sunday September 2, from 2.00pm
Pātaka Art + Museum, Porirua
The Greening of New Blueland presents some of the most seductive, lyrical and yet perplexing works produced by Thomson in the last 12 years. These works speak of our escalating world problems – global warming, over-fishing of the oceans, pollution and environmental degradation.
Thomson asks fundamental questions such as: how does humanity fit within the world of nature? To what extent are we part of, or distinct from our environment? Rather than offer simple answers, her works elicit feelings, reminding us of the exquisite beauty and fragility of the ecosystems we too often take for granted
