Transitions

Sense of Place — Mangawhai Heads

This commissioned work is in the narrative form and continues my recent themes about the land with its past, present and future changes . Transitions is a response to the life cycle of the molluscs as they are broken down to remnants of their previous shell form by the tidal forces and the impact of the waves on the Mangawhai coastline.

As a commissioned piece clients were given several samples of different colours, they choose the warm red and yellow tones. And I worked within these boundaries.
