This project has been a long process and very challenging, which I thrive on, as you learn so much when you have to come up with new and different ways to get things done. Art is constant problem solving - always thinking outside the box, I can not tell you how many hours/months I’ve spent researching, talking, meeting with people, testing, exhausting all options to come up with the best solution. I’ve spent a lot of energy on this which makes me really value and appreciate her and the art itself.
Holi is to debut at this years NZSOS (NZ Sculpture OnShore), with proceeds going to Womens Refuge, I think it’s important to be able to give back with your art and as I’m involved with many charities I’m really pleased to be a part of this and contributing to the proceeds that are going to a good cause.
Special thanks to Okedoki for her collaboration on this project and to Geoff, Hayden, James and Andrew who were very patient and helped me make Holi possible.
Here are some images of her progress, with more to follow once she's completed.
