A new series of works which focus on elements of the Otago landscape towards the Lammerlaws, Lammermoor ranges and the Rock and Pillar.
This rugged, stark landscape inspired these paintings which aim to convey something of the mystery, the light, shadows and silence of distant horizons and rolling hills.
Hills meet sky
Then close in again
Like boiling milk spilling over
In rolling foam
The sun now hidden
Behind cumuli’s candyfloss clouds
In waltz like dance
Casting eerie shadows as they move with speed across the land
and snow grass ripples and bows to the wind
As a curtain of darkness falls at days end
Then another performance of light and life begins
Ivan R Brenssell
