Humankind on the verge of …8
Still life #10
Since the late 1970s printmaker Dee (Denise) Copland has explored the fraught tensions between humanity and the natural world. Primarily focused upon New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere, this has included an interest in environmentalism, de-forestation and climate change. Underlying the subjects of her work has been humanity’s influence on the natural world and the tenuous nature of our survival. Copland graduated from the University of Canterbury, First Class Honours in Printmaking (1977), and lectured at the School of Fine Arts 1982-84. Copland is recognised as one of New Zealand’s foremost printmakers, exhibiting nationally and internationally over the past thirty years.
