Found another nude today on my tiki quest...






Artist by the name of "Regalot".

Not a "Polynesian" theme though, so she will go and join the others in the vault! She will eventually get be sold when the time is right.

Later!

Found this excellent red velvet on CL last week in Sonoma. AlohaCurrent and I made a road trip out to that beautiful country and picked it up for $55.00
It's 2x4 feet and really well airbrushed. The seller bought it over 30 years ago when living in LA, but didn't remember if it was new or not.

Mike,

Nice find on the velvet! I particularly like the red ones, not as common as the black. Was there an artist signature? Anything else found in Sonoma?

PTD, I was lucky to find this on CL while you were on vacation - otherwise, forget it!
There's no signature. When I saw the photo in the listing I was thinking it might be Tyree since he did a few other red velvets that we know of. But after seeing it in person, I'm almost positive it's not his work.

Here is the un- edited version that sold on ebay recently of a rare blonde nude velvet.
I am saving my money to go to Hawaii, so I did not buy.Read the description on the back
of painting very cool.If anyone from TC won this congrats to you.

So it's actually a licensed print by the sound of the spiel on the back?
I have a wahine by the same artist as your previous post (Martinus, based in Melbourne Australia) and it too appears to be a print - there are no visible brush strokes or any changes in depth. It has cracked a little over time but very consistently, and looks exactly like a vintage screenprinted tee would:







I have seen a 100% identical match to this piece of mine on ebay, and have seen exact duplicates of nearly all the other Martinus velvets too, which are usually portraits of Australian Aboriginal subjects - however I haven't seen the one you posted above before. I guess originals must exist, as they would need something to take the copy from?

Part 2 to follow...

Meant to post this here a while back- I have been searching for somewhere to see this film for years and finally came across it on a local website:

Quote:
A homage to Dusky Maiden images as well as a playful take on the low art of velvet painting, Sima Urale’s second film Velvet Dreams provides a tongue-in-cheek exploration of Pacific Island stereotypes. Part detective story, part documentary, an unseen narrator goes in search of a Dusky Maiden painting he has fallen in love with. Along the way he meets artists, fans and critics of the kitsch art genre as well as the Gaugin-like figure of Charlie McPhee. The film won Best Documentary at the 1997 Yorkton Film Festival, Canada.



http://www.nzonscreen.com/title/velvet-dreams-1997

I only got around to watching it the other day and it was well worth the wait. I have seen a few McPhee velvets on my travels here and in the Cook Islands. He has a unique and accomplished style, quite distinct from the other big names of vintage velvet. One sold locally for just under $1k last week. One day...(wistful sigh)

Aside: There is so much good stuff online for free in NZ it's unbelievable - there are also some great docos on Maori art and culture, and movies such as "The Piano" available to watch on that site if you have a look around. Enjoy!
