What Lies Beneath is an exhibition showcasing a range of graphite-on-paper drawings of New Zealand’s aquatic fauna by Tim Li, a 33 year old contemporary Wellington artist blurring the lines between science illustration and fine art. His work mobilizes dramatic monochrome contrast, delicate attention to line detail and true representation of coarse and fine organic textures. His pieces are an antidote to the ego-baiting, trophy hunting, kill culture focused images of fish overshared on social media. Li’s work is scientific in detail, delicate in construction and designed to catalyze conversations on sustainability, reverence and resource management.
