242 Broadway Newmarket ‘Te Ti Tutahi’ 2019

Website

This piece makes reference to the geographic location of Newmarket, situated in a triangle between Mt Hobson, Mt Eden and The Domain in central Auckland. Painted as triangles, these three points also symbolise the three different Pa sites that once inhabited these maunga.

European Oak branches encapsulate the scene as these are prevalent at Mt Hobson today while a lone Cabbage Tree makes an appearance, a direct reference to one in which stood on the corner of Mortimer Pass and Broadway until 1908.

Kaka birds fly inward, a nod to past and present. The feathers were once used by local Maori in the creation of their Kahu Huruhuru (feather cloaks) – with Kaka feathers in particular being used to symbolise leadership – a homage to Newmarket and it’s progression into the future.

Special thanks to @mroscarlow for your support and technical assistance, and to Newmarket Business Association for being such awesome clients.
