An exhibition of new paintings by MARTIN POPPELWELL that explores and romances his local landscape of Bluff Hill in Napier.
To the Old Eye – imagining analogue
A man of ideas and a woman of ideas and love
A beautiful broken broom…
A beautiful broken painting…
All these colours and ideas they are almost joined
Nature repeats herself; or almost does, repeat repeat, revise revise
Each day meandering down the road towards the coast; the aperture between the valley widens on one side of the Bluff; and the other the goal reserve; at the bottom the parade.
The old horizon extends straight out – there is one line – uninterrupted.
Each day the same path down the road and back up.
Up and down
On and on
