'Confluence' (acrylic on canvas stretched over board)
navy & gold acrylic on canvas
120cm x 120cm
Confluence means 'flowing together'... In a literal sense, it's about rivers. In this painting I am referencing the union of multiple cultures flowing together, a common theme found throughout my work celebrating the diversity and multiculturalism within Aotearoa.
The triangles, a recurring symbol across all of my works, represent courage and direction and is a prominent symbol (simplified shark teeth) found in Fijian Tapa with respect to my son’s pacific heritage. They symbolise strength, forward movement and positive direction. The gold is associated with illumination, love, compassion and courage.
‘Confluence’ talks about moving forward, flowing together and celebrating our multicultural heritage and unique attributes that we are so fortunate to be able to experience living in beautiful Aotearoa.
