Framed Art Block - Mihi of the Harakeke by Anna Evans
A Maori Mihi is a Greeting/Introduction that includes information about yourself.   Harakeke, (flax) one of our most distinctive native plants, is the principal weaving plant, and many weavers use named forms selected for leaf pliability, colour and fibre quality.
16.5cm x 16.5cm


Anna Evans works from her studio on the Hibiscus Coast north of Auckland.

Her work is inspired by the landscape and places she grew up around, with a focus on native New Zealand flora and fauna.  Anna's works depict an era where birds ruled in unthreatened totality. Her signature use of vibrant and explosive colour echo the twilight hours when the birdlife she depicts are most vocal. Anna’s paintings are named after people and places associated with her sites of inspiration.

Anna's work often features the Tui.  This is a bird which, to Anna, represents strength and resilience as they are undefeated and not depleted in the face of colonization, unlike many other birds.
