"This is a particularly significant collection of new work. It is a return to the location where my professional career began in New Zealand; it is a return to the energy of creativity and trust that I have often doubted, tested, and questioned in my art practice; it is the first major body of work I have produced since the successful birth of my latest book ‘Seeing Clearly’ and the death of my mum, who was my biggest fan."
These landscapes are masterclasses in colour, light and palette-knife technique, evolving organically without any source material. Each painting tells a story and is intended to take the viewer on their own personal journey, creating space for the eye and the mind to wander freely.
