This painting has been an absolute pleasure to paint celebrating from afar as Cary and her team relocate to their new art gallery home! Congratulations Flagstaff you are a beautiful gallery.
Cary has often mentioned the beautiful Rangitoto Island as a theme for my work and every time I visit Auckland I am reminded of its stunning presence.
This artwork, along with honoring the stunning Rangitoto Island has been made a little bit extra special ! And so as a nod of respect to Cary, her awesome team and the opening of the new space, Rangitoto Taonga has been produced with 24 carat pure gold-leaf. The landform has only pure gold-leaf applied fully over the entire shape, the painting is framed in antiqued gold & silver white wash textured frame.
