Asher Boardman

Snakes & Ladders by Asher BoardmanBased in the Akatarawa Valley, Asher Boardman is inspired by the wilderness and mountains that surround her home. Unusually for a New Zealand artist much of her work features foxes, owls, deer, bears, wolves and rabbits as opposed to New Zealand natives.

Her current range of work contrasts harsh geometric shapes with organic forms to illustrate the impact and confusion that human interference has on nature from the perspective of the animals.

Passionate about conservation and the right of animals to retain their natural habitat, Asher's work often shows animals submerged in a foreign world of harsh contrast, black and white patterns and objects that do not normally appear in an animals' natural habitat. Stark, jarring geometric shapes act as a symbol of the modern world encroaching on an animal's natural environment while the use of black or white animal silhouettes represents their presence, or lack of, as they gradually disappear from their natural landscape as it is destroyed to make way for human developments.

Asher has a degree in visual arts.
