REFUGE – 2001 - Oil on Canvas – 180 x 130 cm

The original drawing for this was set in an interior and that was how it was planned until, while wandering the remote East coast of Niue, I came upon this enchanting glade of sand and salt-weed situated amidst the most hostile environment I had ever seen. This landscape became the perfect stage for my idea that compares the glade with the mother’s womb where the outside world is often hostile and impenetrable and we are safe and ignorant in the oasis of the womb.
