A rich and passionate expression of identity and strength. Coming home to NZ and finding my point of origin, has given me such permission to be myself, loud, colourful and full of life. These paintings are an expression of who I am and as I allow myself the freedom to be me, my paintings become an inheritance of all I am yet to understand.
Multiple layers of acrylic paint and metallic inks on linen.
‘Inheritance 2’ is from my new collection, The Journey Home. A series of paintings celebrating discovering family, exploring culture and understanding identity. This painting has been painted on a professionally stretched linen canvas. With the sides painted, the back taped and strung, this work of art is ready to hang. It has been finished with a high gloss varnish and measures 61 x 61cm (24”x 24”).
This painting can be beautifully paired with ‘Inheritance 1’.
