Project 1

Bywater-15-Trathens jpeg.jpg

Acrylic on board,540mm x 730mm


Trathens had once been a flagship Nelson department store, but had more recently become offices, and ultimately an un- tenanted space. With its failure to meet modern earthquake standards, my favourite Trafalgar Street building had to be demolished.

The demolition was very neatly taking place behind the façade, until it was all that remained. I luckily stopped for a photo on what turned out to be the last day. For safety reasons the façade was taken down overnight, although the window was preserved for a new home. My painting additions are a nod to the past and the future. Yet again, change is the only constant.

3. Framing tip for the smaller prints 

Professional framing easily costs more than the print. One option is to buy a ready-made frame (500mm x 400mm) and then only use a framer for cutting the custom-sized matt. Or if you're lucky the matt sold with the frame might already be the right size.
