A Moment in Time
This superb hard cover book features 20 paintings from the "Moment in Time" series. The books design allows for maximum impact of the paintings with ample white space allowing the images room to show off. The larger landscape images flow over double page spreads. This is the first in a series of five books. The second book is due out in April 2015.
Born in 1966, I was raised in Otaki, a small town of 5000 people located 70km north of Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. I spent the first 18 years of my life there and during this time observed the world change and the pace of life accelerate dramatically--but Otaki pretty much remained unchanged as if time had stood still. As with most small towns, everybody knew each other and, in many ways, it was an idyllic life. When I headed off to study art and design, it called for a change from country living to city life. Despite my enthusiasm for this newfound environment, I hung onto the precious memories of the things and places I'd left behind. In many ways you can still find much of the country pace of life in my paintings.
