"Pushing up daisies" came about as an exercise to show that we don't need to go to exotic places to find creativity - inspiration is all around us if we are open to it.
All the photos that went into this composited photo-artistic work were taken in my garden within a few steps of my front door.
This piece is Giclee printed on archival Breathing Color Canvas Lyve, professionally stretch-framed, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
It is the first print in an open edition.
About The Artist
Judi Lapsley Miller’s art is inspired by the wildlife and land of Aotearoa-New Zealand, the awesome forces that went into making them (and continue to make them), and the tensions between the pre-human and modern world. She strives through her art to advocate for endangered species and spaces by exploring themes like the tenacity of life in the face of environmental destruction, what it means to be endangered, and the post-human world.
Photography is just the first step in Judi’s creative process – she digitally blends and masks layers of photographs, graphics, scanned ephemera and textures, lighting and colour adjustments, and digital brushstrokes to form an image that is more painting than photograph. Photo artistry and digital compositing gives her the freedom to expand her viewpoint and delve deep into her imagination.
She is an active member of the Artists Down Under – Australia & New Zealand group and is a member artist of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.
Over the last two years, she has exhibited in multiple group exhibitions and two solo exhibitions in New Zealand. In the international arena, she has been awarded a Solo exhibition, and twice placed 2nd in the photography and digital media category and 4th and 5th in the overall category in Light Space & Time online gallery exhibitions.
Her wildlife photography is used widely for advocacy and education purposes, including for Zealandia EcoSanctuary, Forest & Bird, NZ Birds Online, Wellington City Council, the Ornithological Society of NZ, and other wildlife and conservation organizations.
