Title: Exotica Indigenis Immixta
Description: Auckland, New Zealand, Unitec, Artis Gallery. 2004, First Edition. Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Hamish Foote follows the style and technique of Renaissance painting to establish a connection with history, and to mark a contrast between his subject matter and methods we use to define it. Foote's central concern is the exploration of exotic and native plants, birds and insects with the first section concentrating on Sir George Greys menage at Kawau Island, the second contemporary birds, and the third insects, with the fourth being extict species. Foote laments the effect of colonisation on New Zealand's flora and fauna, but his painterly illusions encourage the viewer to question what we see and what we know. CONDITION full colour illustrations, artist's biography, exhibition list, bibliography. 20 pages. #New Zealand Art & Architecture#. Near Fine/N/A.
