Moths of Aotearoa, New Zealand


Moths of Aotearoa, New Zealand

Michael Haggie

Opening: October 26 5:30 pm

Viewing: October 26 until November 5

Moths as creatures of the wild, enchant me as a painter. I love their names and their colours, patterns and textures.

Moths in this country, as against butterflies remain comparatively neglected as a species. There is still as yet, a minimal knowledge and understanding of their life histories, distribution and their ecological cycles.

I find reading about a moth’s lifecycle fascinating and rewarding. They are secretly living their lives in our forests, wetlands and mountains. Viva our moths!!
