River Walk – Bobby Duncan 2022.


A very evocative environmental statement.


This work was created as part of Challenge 1 for the exhibition ‘Call and Response’.

Challenge 1: respond to an exercise in Fragmentation and Repair for Mixed-Media and Textile Artists by Shelley Rhodes, pp 94-97, working in a series using a limited range of materials. This challenge was a response to work by Finola Chamberlain Not Quite Katha, pp 10-11

On a walk down the Waikanae River I was reminded that as the pandemic reeks havoc on people, so do the people caught up in it reek havoc on our environment by the dumping of disposable face masks at the edge of pathways.  The tragedy of this inspired me create River Walk as my protest against this needless desecration of our environment.
