Circling the Square

Original painting by Sofia Minson

Digital design and hand-painted flashe on canvas. 1230 x 1820mm including frame.

This is a cosmic portrait of the divine and the manifest. The spiritual and the material. The yang (masculine) and the yin (feminine).  

The male portraits represent a heavenly element such as Rangi. The female portraits personify Te Kore, The Void. She could also be Hine-nui-te-pō, Great Woman of the Night, or Papatūānuku, our Earth Mother.

Their faces were inspired by dozens of 19th-century black and white photographs of Māori, pieced together to become something entirely new in the process.
