Summer 2021

Summer 2021

200cm x 50cm x 40cm

I started work on this project just as borders began closing, and finished it in late summer as the vaccinations began. The headpiece is a mask of sorts – partly ceremonial, partly protective. The suit is shiny, made from a new natural textile, but it’s also the sheen of PPE. The figure is hung with amulets to ward off evil. Summer 2021 faces the pandemic with a brilliant resolve – to continue. Made in collaboration with Strangely Normal. Kindly funded by Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.

I wanted a floating feeling with this painting, like seaweed on water or blossom on the wind.
