New Zealand has a distinctive landscape and flora and fauna and there are many artists that celebrate this through their work, whether it is painting, sculpture, ceramics, carving or weaving. This book show- cases a group of 35 established and aspiring artists and their work, looking at what inspires them, and how their awareness of the importance of conservation motivates their work. Many of the artists fea- tured have close ties with the Department of Conservation so have enjoyed unique access and interaction with the landscape. Four or five works from each contributor are displayed, accompanied by captions from the artists themselves that explain their technical and emotional approach to the subject, along with a brief artist profile and photo. This is not a book just about conservation, but a celebration of the artistic talent New Zealand has to offer, both to New Zealand and around the world. The subtlety and range of these popular and powerful mediums are exquisitely reproduced, creating a special collection of artistic perspectives of the unique New Zealand landscape, their passion for conser- vation that will be treasured by art lovers, art students and conservationists alike.
