Sarah Jamieson is a Scottish visual artist who recently moved to Wellington. This exhibition is a direct response from her journey to and around New Zealand. Her work focuses on the environment surrounding her, and how people explore and connect with it. She focuses on patterns in nature, geography, landforms and found objects that she collects along her travels.

She looks at the idea of place through mapmaking and the language that maps deploy, like a cartographer she uses the process of selection. In her work she also looks at the idea of an ever-changing landscape using organic forms, subtle tone changes and mark making.
