“Whakauruuru” is a Maori word meaning to join up together, or to mix and intermingle. This is the second original artwork in my series that infuses Maori culture with my own culture (Puawai being my first artwork).
As a 5th generation New Zealander my ancesters came into Wellington harbour in 1843. This series tells my families story about their journey once they landed in Petone. “Whakauruuru” blends traditional Maori symbolism and carving with Celtic pattern and colour, and my English sides love of flowers. The artwork is painted on 310gsm watercolour paper and fits an 8 x 12” frame. This is priced unframed at NZ$280 (framed at NZ$320 – for those living in the North Island of New Zealand).
Oil paint and inks. The paper is Ilford Galerie Prestige watercolour paper, 100% cotton rag.
