Then there were animals
Waikato based painter Fleur Benn spent the last year of her degree in 2010 experimenting with recycled wood and the natural formations in the wood and how she could incorporate this into her current practice.
The themes in Fleur's work are evident of her love of animals and are dedicated to the idea, what if all human existence ceased and animals continued to thrive in our environment without us.
Inspired by the documentaries \"Life after people\" and David Attenborough's “Life series” Fleur thinks it’s important for us as humans to acknowledge the impact we have on animals and their environment, regardless of it being negative or positive.
