Multicultural Land an abstract nz painting that talks about the many cultures we have in Aoteraroa New Zealand. Each one unique and special in its own right.
This is a super long 1500mm x 450mm canvas. Its mixed media using artists quality paints, pastes and gels it has shiny smooth resin parts, dry crackled effects, silver leaf, micaceous paint which provides a gritty texture with a glitter effect, a little bit of nature with leaves, seeds and twigs and other effects. I was asked to paint something that a blind person could also appreciate and thats where this comes from.
Taking into account our many cultures in New Zealand, this piece is about how we blend and divide and come back together.
