Red Tree, Nuhaka

A series of 3 inspired by Mondrian’s “Red Tree”. We’ve travelled the Nuhaka-Mahia road to Mahanga beach for 45+ years now – it’s a bit remote out here, the gravel has been only recently sealed, not wide enough for a centre line, no signposts for the tricky 90 degree corners at both ends of this section. This tree has dominated the view in recent memory (I can’t remember it when it was small).

When I went up there last summer shortly after finishing this it was gone, chainsawed into bits by the roadside. Perhaps 1 winter storm too many last year.
