title Twenty-four Hours, Tasman Bay, 23 September 2006
medium Acrylic on formed acrylic
dimensions 1200 x 1200 mm

Painted from a vantage point overlooking Tasman Bay, this work examines the transition in atmospheric light and colour over each hour in a twenty-four hour period. One of the twenty-four moulded panels was painted every hour between midnight September 22 and midnight September 23, creating a direct visual reference to the artist's experience and observation of the passing hours.

As a whole this work takes on a striking form suggestive of the geometry of nature and its Pacific location. Underlying this is the artist's intention to establish a discussion about the 'time-poor' nature of contemporary existence and our constructed sense of time, versus the continual transitions inherent in the earth's natural rhythms.
