The atmospheric beauty and illuminating landscapes are 'memory jewels' of Aotearoa. The beautiful memories come out in a painting like this, an immense amount of reverence and respect for the land, the sea and the skies we get to call our own here in New Zealand - the taonga and the treasure of this land.
The landform glowing with gold-leaf differently in whatever way you approach the artwork. The many layers in the water and sky allows a different reading of the painting with different times of the day casting changing light.
This painting is on display at Flagstaff Gallery, 30 Victoria Road, Devonport, Auckland.
