THE POEM Mixed Media painting Tui
When I first arrived in New Zealand I hitch hiked sightseeing and photographed much of the North Islands East Coast. Mixed Media painting Tui
Numerous uniquely New Zealand attractions motivated my artistic and photographic endeavors.
These were the amazing East Coast beaches, Pohutukawa trees, geothermal mud pools, Tui, Maori, rich rural farmlands, thick bush canopies, and the large ranges. (Note, I came from the flatlands of West Australia – interpreted, the NZ ranges we’re more like mountains to me).
The stealth, colors, and agility of Tui still fascinate me.
If you think about it, we all play at something to stimulate our imaginations. There are no boundaries to the rule.
This work inspired me to use lots of old canvas discards, blocks of wood, sign-ply offcuts and failed corrugated iron projects .
The philosopher’s thoughts
What about the philosopher’s desire to seek life’s beginning, meaning, and end.
In this work I could travel down many roads of thought to a conclusion wrapped up in my life story around meeting the creator of everything.
His reveals and conversations with me have left me in no doubt about all the marvels that have come together in creating this work.
Think …. life, heartbeats, blood, oxygen, manufactured substrates from extracted minerals, flight, wing design, creative thinking, light, manufactured ink pigments, molecules, stamens, nectar and the unending knowledge embedded in this work.
Enough said … I worship the manufacture for His gift to me.
