Breakdown Winter ‘018
09 Aug – 01 Sep 2018
…Breakdown ‘018…I pick up leaves. I’m drawn to their colours and how the passing seasons alter them…Autumn/ Winter breakdown, Spring and Summer’s rejuvenation. There’s repetition in what I do. It can become quite meditative and trance like…sometimes early memories come to me… my dad cutting the hedge with colour around his feet…a morning walk at Maungakiekie…bird calls and sparks of sunlight on wet branches…simple moments of time pass as I course my way through a day…
