‘Perpetual Embrace’ from my Origins of Life series. A collection of paintings exploring the Māori creation narrative.
Multiple layers of acrylic paint and iridescent inks on linen.
This painting has been created 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”).
The children of Ranginui and Papatuanuku lived in darkness until they were desperate for the light. Tane (the god of the forest) had seen the light of the sun shining under the armpit of Rangi, so he consulted with his elder brothers about how they could separate their parents.
