From my Maori and Polynesian themed series from 2017 this piece was the first of the new works. This piece formed the nucleus of the recent series of inner feelings and thoughts provoked by a need to paint what I see from inside rather than influence what I see on the outside.
This is very much a positive image which can be interpreted in several ways. I like to view this a moment of thought which was developing a train of consciousness of the work that was to follow, although I didn’t know that at the time. Sometimes just getting the image out of your head clears the way for fresh images and thoughts to occupy the space left vacant.
