|original painting, acrylic medium on canvas, metallics and tissue with paua laminate eyes, sizes 910 mm x 200 mm
This is one of my favorite designs as it is identifiably traditional for me... and I like to see it expressed in a contemporary way. A meaningful design that can be continued infinitely, encompassing all the concepts of life cycles, the inevitability of karma, renewal, and perpetuation. This painting is included in my latest series of works which mean to develop texture, and depth of dimension and form which dominated the art, craft and carving of early Maori.
