Based in Christchurch, New Zealand, Ben Reid is an emerging artist producing both print and mixed-media works. In his prints, Reid combines specific references to local environmental histories with a wider appreciation for the conservation movement. Providing gentle reminders of the fragile nature of New Zealand’s environment, Reid’s recent prints focus on vulnerable native plants and animals whose existence has been threatened by disease, loss of habitat and the introduction of exotic predators. Ben’s mixed media works are studies of buildings around New Zealand that hold some interest or appeal to him.
