Cheers fellas, It makes it all worth while doing these paintings just to hear your encouragement alone. Thanks.

Thanks Marcus and Tiki Shark. Careful what you wish for TS . I've got a case full of acrylics gathering dust. There's no going back dude, especially if your the blendy type. But for mood and subtelty of hue it's all aces, especially if you have the time. Do it, do it, do it. I'd so love to see your work in oils, It's amazing anyway but eh.. world domination an' all that, hey hey.
In my opinion (and for what its worth), the switch has to happen, it's just a matter of when.
ka kité Liam

kia ora all. Just said good-bye to an old favourite. Sold but not forgotten. Not in the Tiki style but hey you gotta break with tradition sometime. The green girl was my first attempt at painting back in 95. I'd never sell that chick, she'd skewer me. More to come soon.

Kia ora. been out of the picture a bit lately, but happy to say, havn't been slacking. I had an exhibition in Auckland which went gangbustas and the work is getting out there. Here is a bit more of what I've been up to between Rum & Rugby here in Aotearoa.


HAERE MAI HE TETE KURA - ARRIVAL OF A NEW FROND
This image represents the intrinsic values of nature and nurture through our connection to Papatuanuku (Earth Mother). A rebirth takes place and in doing so brings with it a new consciousness of the tupuna (ancestors) that stood before. The exotic gold-finch brings the past into present and sings a song of new dawns.
I posted this before when it was still unfinished, this is a better pic.


TE KORO HEKE - THE OLD GUY
‘The old Man’ knows where his spirit lies; he wants for nothing more. Life is abundant all around him and he rests easy, complete and humbled by the knowledge that he and Papatuanuku speak freely.


KARAKIA
He welcomes in the evening with karakia, his faith as strong as his song. Tiwakawaka feed from the sky, playfully, erratically, all is as it should be.


KINA - SEA EGG
The simplicity of a beach holiday where ‘being’ is the core experience. Smell, sound taste and images permeate our psyche and we feel content, connected and accepting of the earth in all its temperaments.

Beautiful. I really dig your style. I like that there is a spiritual aspect to these paintings. It takes tiki to another level. Very nice work. I checked out your web page, lot's of great stuff.

Thanks Tabu, Glad you appreciate the work. From down here, Tiki is quite a revered and spritual symbol and not too many people mess with it. I like to merge it with contemporary Maori in order to make more of a social comment. It seems to be working ok, well I still have my own teeth anyway. Liam.
