Hellloooo Limey, allow me to introduce myself.... my name is Jon.
I am extremely happy to meet you.
Your paintings are magical. I am impressed in many ways -
Your images are quirky and comical,
The message behind the paintings is intense, thoughtful and inspiring in the tradition of a fable!
Your execution is flawless - from composition to detail to shading you are a master.
I find your style 'Dali-esque' with a tribute to fantasy art. Truly a new chapter in the art style of Dada/Surrealism!
Add Tiki to the mix and the emotional and spiritual message is even more complex!

I look forward to seeing one in real life, and seeing your next creation!

Kia ora, ok I finally put this baby to bed and off it goes into the ether of chin strokers. Actually it could be a bit topical in these parts after some recent events sourrounding the fuzz and local Maori. Anyway, it took about 6 weeks of 10 hour days, but a whole lot of fun. hope yas like it.

Kia ora, Serving up a new effort. 'Turangawaewae'
This painting sits at 1.7m x .7H in oil on canvas.
It looks at the subject of identity and is titled 'Turangawaewae' 'A place to stand' The kiwi, known as the eldest child of Tane Mahuta, (god of the forest), is said to offer an older sibling’s protection. Here the kiwi connects though a hongi (touching of noses and sharing of breath - welcome) with a spirit of the land in acknowledgement of their place of standing and belonging.
ka kite, Liam.

Beautiful stuff - I like the way your land spirit mirrors the form of the mountains in the background, and the lizard-like way he's poised on his toes gives the hongi an extra little frisson of tension.
Do you have any of your art on display in any Welly galleries, or are they long gone (or snapped up by voracious JAFAs) before they get the chance? I'll be up there late April and would love to see one of your pieces "for real"...

I love this, gorgeous work I love the mix of the old traditional looking landscape with the modern land spirit. Great sense of depth and atmosphere too, and the light clouds on the distant mountains draws your eye into the painting.

Hey Paipo and Hewey, glad you like the work, its always good to see how people respondand interperate the work. Always appreciate the feedback so thanks.
Paipo, I dont have any original work in any Wellington Galleries at present just prints at Ora. I am working on a solo for Sept. in Auckland, but you can always come to the house where I have a few on the walls, Were in Newtown. Drop me a line closer to the time and we'll arange it. Oh yeah, whats a JAFA?

I used to sell through Ora quite a while ago. Part of the plan on the next trip up is finding somewhere new to show/sell my work in the capital.
JAFA means "Just Another F$%#ing Aucklander" - a common term of endearment for our Northern friends, used by everyone south of the Bombay Hills. I'm guessing plenty of your work probably ends up there?
We're only doing a quick weekender (this time) - between Te Papa and Cuba St my trip is probably spoken for, but I very much appreciate the offer. Let me know if you ever send any work down south!

You got it in one Paipo, that's where the $ are, though I'd love to get the work around more. It's a fickle market at the mo. Do you know Eyeball Kicks on Cuba St. Might be worth talking to Calvin there, he works the tiki culture and has a finger firmly on the pulse of Wellington. I don't think you'll be needing any luck. your work speaks for itself.

Robb, thanks for checking and appreciating the work,

Kia ora one and all. New offerings for you perusal and discussion, Whilst 'Queen Bee' isnt tiki as such, I thought the relationship was still there with the wahini.
Thanks for looking.


QUEEN BEE
84 x 101cm Oil on Linen 2008
She welcomes the beat of an unborn heart. Her belief in the ways of truth and duty, offer her the grace to accept that as matriarch over her domain, she is Queen Bee.
Inspired by Ihimaera’s character Ramona - ‘Bulibasha’ and the landscapes of the Gisborne region.


TANE MAHUTA
84 x 101cm Oil on Linen 2008
‘Tane Mahuta’ (lord of the forest) majestic and towering, is the source, rooted firmly between his mother (Paptuanuku) and father (Ranginui). From deep within, he offers up the life force to feed his vast empire.
