About the Work
A highlight of my time in Whanganui was collaborating with the Whanganui Walls team on the inaugural 2019 street art festival. One of the works, a portrait of Edith Collier by Detroit-based artist Pat Perry, came out of the artist working with the Sarjeant Gallery and the Edith Collier Trust to delve into Collier's back catalogue. Viewing her palette was a highlight of this process for me - there's something really special about seeing the tools she used, still with dabs of hardened pigment swirled over the surface.
