Painting & Printmaking Awards 2019

 

Got accepted as a finalist in the 2019 New Zealand Painting and Printmaking awards. This years works were lovely and I was proud to be a part of the exhibition.

The work I submitted was a diptych titled “Confluence” that I finished late last year. Yugen is the Japanese word for universal awe and wonder, which I often feel when on a tramp or exploring a new part of New Zealand.

Using intuitive mark making, I have allowed a year of physical wanderings to influence my memory and sense of place. Wanting to evoke yūgen with a dreamlike composition of both metaphorical and spacial intersections
