WHITE NIGHT, 6pm-midnight, Saturday 14th March, 2015 at Remuera Gallery | 360 Remuera Road, Remuera, Auckland 1050, New Zealand, ph + 64 9 524 7403
Remuera Art Gallery gave me a table to do an artwork with for White Night.......
I painted ‘The Feast’ in direct response to seeing an image of ‘Native Feast held at Remuera, May 11th 1844’ a watercolour by Joseph Jenner Merret and reading about the event. (“In 1844 Waikato chiefs hosted a week-long feast near Mt Hobson in Remuera. It was attended by about 4,000 Māori and many Pākehā, including an official party led by Governor Robert FitzRoy”)
