Michael Smither. “Horseshoe Bay – Tutukaka Coast.”
Limited Edition Screen Print. $320 unframed.
Michael Smither CNZM was born in 1939 in New Plymouth. During his long and prolific career, Michael has found continuing inspiration in his immediate environment, the colours and forms of the land and the activities of the people who live here. His paintings are held in many public collections including the Auckland City Art Gallery and Te Papa, as well as numerous significant private collections in NZ and overseas.
This image “Horseshoe Bay – Tutukaka Coast” was first painted in 1985 while on a trip to Northland. This original is a richly textured oil painting which sold at auction back then and it is thought to have gone overseas.
This limited edition screen print aims to capture the vitality of the original and speaks of the lushness of this part of New Zealand. The edition size is 400 copies.
It meaures 50 X 36 (paper size) 31cm X 23cm (image size) and is hand signed and dated by Michael.
Horseshoe Bay is just South of Matapouri Bay, is a privately owned cove and therefore very secluded.
The HAC group is extremely grateful to Michael for allowing us to reproduce this striking work with 100% of the proceeds going to the build.
