TE MATA WOOLSHED, 2023 Acrylic on canvas, 1550x1250mm
This large piece features the historic and iconic Te Mata woolshed floating amongst sea of green. It is the latest in a series of local woolsheds to emerge from Josh’s easel. In typical Lancaster style the familiar rural architecture becomes heroic, a giant steel beast emerging from lush vines. Behind it the view looking rolls out towards Napier and the ocean beyond.
‘I love an old wool shed – they were always magical places to visit as a kid… signposted to the senses by warm wafts of lanolin mingling merrily with honk of sheep poo’.
This piece will be auctioned at the annual Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction, on Saturday 16th September 2023, all proceeds will be gifted to Cranford Hospice. Get your tickets now and register to bid for this amazing piece.
TE AWA, 2021. Signed, numbered & framed limited edition 1/15 print by Josh Lancaster
This is a piece from Josh Lancaster’s sell-out solo show in Havelock North ‘BITS OF THE BAY’ in 2018. It features the iconic ‘self-oiler’ wind turbine sitting outside Te Awa Estate in the late afternoon sun. ‘A marker for remembering special times, special people, special occasions. And most probably a special wine’.
This print has been paired with a special collection of 6 wines from Te Awa Estate and forms a unique piece of Hawke’s Bay winegrowing history as neither the windmill pictured nor the winery are in existence today.
This Bonus Lot will be auctioned at the Preview & Tasting event for this year’s Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction, on Wednesday 16th August 2023. All proceeds will be gifted to Cranford Hospice. Get your tickets now and pre-register to bid.
