Scale; 11 x 4.5 metres
Zealandia is a remixed, multicultural, version of the central image from the certificate for the New Zealand Centennial Exhibition 1930-1940. The certificate is a beautiful piece of design that I thought could use modernisation for todays culture. I have added maori, pasifika and asian elements to the original image.
I have produced smaller scale images of Zealandia during the development of this piece but felt that she deserved to be produced large scale.
Zealandia was first produced on a temporary medium for Waitangi Day 2010 but now has a more permanent home in my neighbourhood.
