Todd Jenkins is a Hobart based artist and Endemic is Todd’s fifth solo exhibition with Despard Gallery. This recent body of work celebrates iconic regions of the Tasmanian landscape, in particular kunanyi, Mount Field and takayna.  Paintings examines the unique topographical features of these highland spaces; including tarns, rivers, marshes, as well as rare deciduous and evergreen flora.  It also reflects on the delicacy of present-day ecosystems through insects, crustaceans and fungi, alongside the remnants of ancient memories carved into stone and ringed within wood through prehistoric watermarks and fossils.
