* Required Fields



A layered photographic based snapshot of the many urban and local superette /dairy signs that we identify as our Kiwi heritage and so commonly relate to through our childhood memories and experiences growing up in New Zealand. Milkshakes, fish & chips, TipTop icecreams, takeaways, 4 Square... back in the day when 99c used to go a long way!

Each collage is made up from hundreds of layers of textures and content. Popular Resene paint colours have also been integrated into the compositions to compliment many colour schemes. When the unique, imperfect and quickly hand-painted words are bought together in a structured & layered composition, it is only then that we see the beauty in the inadvertent ‘drybrushing', layering, rubbing back, painting over, and completely free & practical expression of these sign boards - ironically, these are many of the techniques that artists use today.

Photograph printed onto thick synthetic canvas.

Dimensions: small 60cm x 30cm, medium 90cm x 45cm, large 120cm x 60cm, extra large 140cm x 70cm
