Craigs Aspiring Art Prize finalist 2020



"Journey" explores the relationship between nature and the human world.  Visual metaphors, symbols and muted colour has been used to create a sense of mystery and to tie the painting to New Zealand but not directly to a time or place. In this painting you will find indistinguishable islands, the calm, uninviting sea, and the sea fog that obscures direction. The stern of the canoe blends cultural symbols as a way of pointing to a way forward and to the journey ahead.


Measures 76 cm x 76 cm x 3.5 cm deep (30 inches x 30 inches x 1.38 inches deep) . 

Premium Artist Oil paint is used to ensure that the colours are clean, bright and light-steadfast. The paints A and AA ratings aid in the longevity of the paints, and will last well over 75 years.  The canvas is made from 100% cotton with a tight, even weave and is coated with a quality gesso primer.  As many as 12 layers of transparent glazes are applied to the paintings to achieve the colour and light displayed in each work.
