On the bonnet

Ngipi Ward, 'Nissan', 2007

Whilst looking at indigenous artist Ngipi Ward’s painted car bonnet at GOMA, Leg of Lamb couldn’t help but think of Rohan Wealleans.  There is a curious kinship in the artists’ layering and excising of paint, that reveals the accumulation of colours beneath.  Rohan’s had a go at painting a bonnet too, earlier this year he created A thick cream (below) for a Kidz First charity raffle in Auckland.
