From the original acrylic on 600mm diameter round panel painting - 'Luggate Ecosystem' 2018 by Anna Priluka.

- When my studio gets too hot in summer, I often take my painting down to a shady spot on the bank of the Clutha River. The land there is highly modified - overrun by introduced rabbits, there are few native species to be seen, aside from the odd flax, matagouri and piwakawaka flitting through the trees.

Yet the land there also has its own kind of beauty, and there is no doubt that many of the introduced species now abundant in Central Otago are here to stay. Most of the plants here are extremely hardy colonising species that are the first to start growing on bare ground. Reproducing quickly and profusely they live relatively short lives. Perhaps eventually they will pave the way for a longer lived, more diverse ecosystem - in the meantime there is joy in the shade of the willows and the buzz of the insects amongst the flowers. -

Open edition.
Printed in Nelson, New Zealand on 300gsm, 100% post consumer waste recycled stock. Please be aware that because the prints are made with recycled stock, very tiny flecks may be present on some of the paper. I enjoy the natural look this gives and feel it is much preferable to printing on paper made from old-growth forest pulp!
Each is individually signed and monogrammed and comes with a thick board backing, information blurb on rear and enclosed in a 'cellophane' bag for protection. Shipped flat in recycled cardboard packaging.

Thanks :)
