The Moon is Full

Original painting by Sofia Minson

Digital design and hand-painted acrylic on canvas. 1230 x 1455mm including frame.

The wheel of repeated tui, form a twelve-sided mandala. Their place inside the circle indicates that community, connection and cycles of learning enable growth. 

“Kua hua te mārama” is a whakatauki (Māori proverb) meaning “The moon is full.” It indicates that something has completed a full cycle or reached maturity.

Minson hand-painted a single tui at a large scale using watery washes of flashe (vinyl paint) on canvas. She took a high-resolution digital capture of the tui and using digital technology created a repeating twelve-sided mandala pattern. Printing this on canvas she then painted the rest of the composition by hand.
