Description

Auction Lot Details

This year’s 2020 Hawkes Bay Wine Auction, I have painted Bacchus: The mythological ancient god of wine and agriculture who was thought to wander the earth teaching people how to cultivate and grow grapes and help process the wine, often travelling with a leopard at his side.

With my minimal colour palette and love of the human form, mixing mediums, playing with surfaces, I alternate between realism and abstraction, ebb and flow. I enjoy juxtaposing a traditionally represented subject in a contemporary environment, allowing the process to create intrigue with lost edges and serendipitous finds.

Additional Details

I am born and bred in this beautiful region from Danish and Ngai Tahu decent. My interest in art has been eternal: inheriting an appreciation at an early age. Trips to Florence to study art and directly experiencing the work of the old masters are also a part of my practice.

I have enjoyed the challenge of painting this mythological creature and it has been a privilege to have the opportunity to give to this incredible organisation.

A quote from Leonardo da Vinci –
“A beautiful body perishes but a work of art does not”.
