Paul Gadsby is exhibiting five of his most recent 'Political Bird Paintings' In each painting, Paul depicts an environmental issue that is current, in our faces and needs immediate attention. The series is anticipated to grow as issues that concern Paul, warrant him to put brush to canvas as a way to express his concerns. Just some of the controversial topics raised in Pauls paintings are :- 1080 poison drops, the loss of bird and insect habitat due to monoculture farming practices, the current housing crisis and threat that urban development places on native birds, and longline fishing & plastic waste in the sea. These paintings are painted in a creative style influenced by the famous NZ artist, Don Binney.
