Sugartree Laneway Mural ‘The Connector’ Flox and Trustme 2019

Website

This artwork locates Sugartree as a central connector, a bridge between the urban and suburban, central and west, the built environment and the natural environment. It employs the Puriri moth as the central and connecting feature as a symbol for the transformation that has taken place on this site. The development of a non-descript piece of light industrial and commercial land into an accessible and liveable space to be shared and enjoyed.

Content, colour and composition are all used to consciously create a contrast between the left side and right. The left side references the hard edges, hard materials and colour of the city scape, alluding to the formality of the architecture and the multi faceted nature of the urban experience. The right side draws on the organic quality of the landscape as you travel west and features the Kauri and punga with an inflight Kererū, New Zealand’s 2018 Bird Of The Year.

This relationship between the city and natural environment is one inherent to Auckland and Aucklanders and is a hallmark of living in this city. It is this connection that is addressed in this artwork, this site and more broadly by this development.
