Following a tragedy in the South Island where a grandfather, father, and son from the same family died in a boating accident during a storm in the Foveaux Strait. The boat’s name was Kotuku, which is also the Māori name for the white heron. Turner regularly documented boats, storms and disasters in his work, and so it felt poignant to create this painting.
