Tahitian Delight

11/15/ 2020 – “Mataiea Floral” is the latest addition to my ‘Reflection Series’ -all pieces in this series are made by painting on framed mirrors which I find and repurpose from people discarding them locally. ‘Mataiea’ has a deeply scrolled frame and I used melted wax on the mirrored surface. 

It represents the flowers I imagine Gauguin might have enjoyed and been inspired by during his visit to the community of Mataiea on the French Polynesian Island of Tahiti.
