Reflections on art, motherhood and the environment;
Recent events have heightened my need to appreciate what is near and dear to me. This series aims to capture the precious and ever changing aspects of life as a mother. Renaissance mother and child drawings have inspired me. I am interested in studies expressing intimate and approachable depictions of mother and child.
I relate this to the Hurunui and the Waitohi, my local rivers, from lake to sea over the braided plains. This is my landscape as a mother.
My work is a tribute to what I have in a rapid, everchanging world.
See this exhibition at Little River Gallery, opening Saturday 11th June at 11am.
