Lynn Kelly
'Specimen'

Jewellery inspired by New Zealand native flora

"This work arises from a voyage I undertook in 2007 to Dusky Sound, at the invitation of the Otago Peninsula based Caselberg Trust. During this trip several sites were visited where the Endeavour moored on its first trip and Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander had collected New Zealand plant specimens.

With the help of Creative New Zealand I then went on a research trip to the UK in 2008 and visited the Natural History Museum in London to view the original botanical collections and journals of Sir Joseph Banks and Sydney Parkinson's sketches and drawings from the 1768 - 1771 visit.

I am intrigued by the early pressed specimens and have been experimenting with creating various representations of these plants. This show is based on my responses to the pressed plants in the herbarium and beautiful botanical drawings I viewed."
