Patea Freezing Works

A friend was asking me recently about some of the paintings I’ve done of the Freezing Works over the years, so here goes. Some of the paintings are about the buildings, others are about the incredible colours of rust and lichen inside the work rooms and other are me thinking about the way in which nature was taking over the land again before to the post-fire cleanup.
