Oil on canvas
1800 x 1500mm
This painting is one of a series exhibited in 1985. The title’s reference to a large international tourist hotel built in Symonds Street at the time remains enigmatic. Large areas of canvas have been allowed to show through a composition based on converging and diverging lines in bright colours.
