Parnell Gallery Christmas Art Exhibition 29 November – 1 December 2014

This year I’ve got six brand new paintings in the Parnell Gallery Christmas Exhibition, which showcases works by 17 New Zealand artists and opens to the public at 10am on Saturday 29 November. My pieces are all 300 x 300mm in size and very affordable at $300 unframed. Five of my six paintings celebrate the life force or what Maori term the ‘mauri’ of symbolic power animals or spirit animals, including the black panther, the white tiger, the lion (as seen in the picture below) and New Zealand’s native kaka bird. The sixth artwork is a mandala, a circular pattern inspired by the Pacific ocean.
