Belted Galloway

Belted-GallowayAcrylic and mixed media painting on poplar floating panel, 1200mm H  x 1200mm W, 2015.

Growing up I always enjoyed passing the local Umupuia Marae and looking up on the hills to spot the Belted Galloway. Recently moving back to Clevedon and thinking about its ever changing future I was struck by the symbolism of the black and white strips on each animal.  Recently when I visited the marae to ask permission to draw these beautiful animals, it was confirmed that they were always intended to stand proudly on the hill as a symbol of biculturalism.
