Wax on Panel

120 x 90cm

As an ocean lover, I wanted to convey all the beauty that is captured in a paua shell or abalone shell. Using wax and oil pastels, this painting is made up of many layers of blue, green, silver and purple medium with iridescence showing a different effect at every angle. This piece is also representative of our NZ culture, our oceans, the colours and the people made up of a multicultural ‘melting pot.’ Can be hung both horizontally and vertically.
