Rerenga; Tonga o te Ra – Sunset

2007
Oil and enamel on board
W780 x H360

In a return to focus on art from New Zealand, in particular, Ralph Hotere, I began playing around with enamel and oil paints, creating layers and scratching away details to create the artwork. The use of text is always deliberate and this work is my first to use Te Reo Māori in it.
This work is paired with Rerenga; Haeata – i te atatu – Sunrise
