Tui - Avian
140 x 120cmW, Oil on Linen, 2015
Tui are synonymous with the Wellington region, and its inclusion in this series had to be acknowledged as their playful aerobatics and cheerful song can be heard from dawn till dusk. 'Tui' being the fourth in the Avian series has me searching for a playful yet refined image with much drama in the surrounding sky. A repetitive circular motif subtly resides within the composition from the bob hair, breasts, tail and of course the hoop, I like how this one came out.
