Kermadec presents a collection of artworks from South Pacific artists inspired by their voyage to the Kermadec region of New Zealand early last year.

Four artists represented in the Chartwell Collection - Phil Dadson, Gregory O’Brien, John Pule and John Reynolds - were invited to take part in Pew Environment Group’s Ocean Legacy Programme, which saw them travel to the Kermadecs, 1,000km north of Auckland, on board the HMNZS Otago in May 2011.

In the videos below Phil Dadson and John Reynolds reflect on their experience. You can visit the Kermadec Vimeo page for further Kermadec videos, including videos of all of the artists involved.
