acrylic paint, metal flake and resin on canvas

$27,000

Drawing upon the archetypical Tree of Life that connects the heavens to the underworld this painting is an expression of various vibrating energies coming together in conversation. Different forms of relationships (such as familial ties) abound in this rich ecosystem that exposes the roots and invites the viewer to participate in new ways of seeing and experiencing connection. In Māori cosmology the birds are also messengers and carry our thoughts and prayers to the Ātua (the gods). The colours also showcase a distinctive palette from the ochre and brown tones of the gnarled root formations to the pink and then golden lights of the tree tops where different forms of flight are depicted.
