…where the heart lies, your truth is found…
…pop art, I suppose…
‘Within Your Grasp’
…you may feel you are clutching at thin air at times – keep reaching – you are within touching distance of what you want and where you need to be…
‘Here Comes The Summer’
Summer is coming to Aotearoa/New Zealand.
I know this not just because the weather is getting warmer,or that Labour Weekend has just passed.
But because the creamy flower buds are appearing on the pohutukawa trees.
Soon the trees will be awash with crimson bloom.
And summer will be here.
‘The Far Now’
…for it has arrived!…
…for we all heading here together…
‘Soft Shell Light’
…all pearl and pale…
‘An Ancient Descent’
an ancient descent
foliage in falling thread
frame by frame
‘Tick The Bucket’
…don’t kick it, tick it (your bucket list, that is)…
‘The Shape Of Things II’
‘This Side Of The Grave (Gothic View)’
‘Symbols Of The South Pacific’
A Fijian masi (or tapa) cloth detail.
Mesmerising geometric symbols, telling tales from islands in the Pacific.
Repetition of pattern and bold signifiers, in traditional form, but somehow modernist.
Art that, in the way of all good art, is redolent of its origins but transcends place and time.
‘Pluviophile’s Dream III’
…lost in this watery dreaming, just can’t see my way clear…
‘Pluviophile’s Dream II’
…more diamonds on my windshield…
