About the Work
“This unfinished painting by Edith Collier appeals because of its bright refreshing colours. I first saw it when it was displayed in the Sarjeant Gallery at Pukenamu Queen’s Park. For me, the unfinished state adds to its intrigue and I find it an appealing and evocative work. I made a drawing of this work that resulted in an etching I was pleased with, and Edith Collier’s painting of the girl in a hammock remains one of her works that I always remember fondly. This painting has been included because its bright colours and intriguing composition appeal to me, as do Collier’s stronger Kawhia paintings.”
Jim Norris, a retired farmer and company manager, for the March 2020 instalment of the My Choice exhibition series.
