These images are based on the view of Young Nick's Head from Waikanae Beach in Gisborne. This was the first feature sighted by Captain Cook when he arrived to explore New Zealand in 1789. As such it has entered the realm of legend and myth. The works are produced from memory and explore the nature of our recall and understanding of our suroundings. The cliffs are of soft stone and subject to erosion - the liniar wave form at the base of the paintings indicate a continuity and longevity that outlives the apparent longevity of the cliffs.
The black base indicative of the internal darkness from which memories emerge.
The media is acrylic and crayon on panel.
These works and others are available from PAULNACHE, Gisborne where they were shown in 2009.
