Despite its confusing name, the killer whale is actually the largest member of the dolphin family.
New Zealand is home to an estimated 150–200 individuals, which travel long distances throughout the country’s coastal waters.
We are beginning to understand that there are different types of orca throughout the world, and work on defining these types is currently underway. Even within New Zealand it has been proposed that there are three different types, based on observations of different food preferences.
Orca are typically encountered in family groups or pods. Pods are usually formed for life and can result in the development of unique dialects.
This series of works is a way to express the awakening between humans and nature that we could have. Letting Mother Nature and her creations teach us to how embrace and breathe the wonders of this world, to get back into sync and stop destroying the treasures and protect them instead – ‘to reconnect with nature’. Letting the whispers of nature influence our actions. Reconsider the fundamental abilities to survive, to feel alive, and challenge our skills as an integration back to the wilder.
