Gate to Te Koo Utu
Acrylic on canvas, 120 x 90cm
A commissioned piece for the home and garden.
The initial brief was for a painting to adorn a 2.4 x 1.8m gate in the clients garden to create a ‘view’ from within a private walled garden. A favourite place, Lake Te Koo Utu, was chosen as the main subject with the historical Lake Te Koo Utu gates being the element that leads into the painting. (And the irony of the painting of the gates being on the gate!)
The original canvas painting was reproduced on aluminium sign board and fixed to the gate creating this garden room with a view.
