Gabrielle Amodeo's exhibition sees the unfolding of Audrey Eagle's, Eagle's Complete Trees and Shrubs of New Zealand (Wellington: Te Papa Press). Amodeo has finely removed Eagle's botanic illustrations of the more than 800 species, sub species and unnamed plants depicted in this exhaustive collation of New Zealand's endemic flora, with care equal to Eagle's rendering.
This is an ongoing project for Amodeo.
