This body of work includes images of the different forms of transport that allow us to return to our place of origin. All of the various forms of transport represented in the paintings have been taken from New Zealand’s past.
From the bus ride home after school, to the taxi ride home after a night out partying. From the long haul flight back to New Zealand to a ferry ride across the Cook Strait. The journey home can be the drive from work to home at the end of a long day. For some people the journey home is returning to their tribal district and experiencing that feeling of ‘turangawaewae’ (the sense of belonging). For others it’s the journey that we all must make when life comes to a close.
