Ngā tohu i Te Rāhui / Signs from Lockdown
Framed Original Oil painting, from my 2020 exhibition at Hall of Design in Oākura.
On a beautiful day in lockdown, my kids and I collected these driftwood pieces on Oākura beach. Arranging them in this way references ancient text or symbols, as if nature is speaking to us.
“But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
And the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you;
And the fish of the sea will explain to you.”
