Philippa and I have just returned from Venice where an environmental artwork “Synergy” is exhibited as a finalist in the Arte Laguna Prize exhibition along with works by 115 other international artists from 30 countries. The exhibition opening and award ceremony was a glittering affair at the Arsenale Venice where we were one of ten finalists in the new Land Art category.
After a week exploring the history, beauty and art of Venice we travelled to Corsica where we explored the beauty of the mountains, granite rock climbing and hiking. The Corsican landscape is spectacular and in March is uncrowded if a little chilly.

Returning to our home in the mountains of New Zealand we are struck as always by the natural beauty of the landscape and reminded of how lucky we are to live and work here.
