NANCY DE FREITAS – BLOOD FLOORS/CLAY WALLS (HUGE)
Title: Blood Floor/Clay Walls
Artist: Nancy de Freitas
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Oil Size: 130cm x 110cm
Frame Size: 134cm x 114cm
Nancy de Freitas Large Acrylic On Canvas. “Blood Floors/Clay Walls” part of her family album series. Signed & dated 92 bottom right. The image is in “Very Good” condition. The Rimu frame is also “Very Good”.
For the author’s explain, the three rooms refer to: 1) the place of the family/mother relationship 2) the honing of independence in wider relationships (ie to the family/siblings first) and 3) the growth of ego and personal strength. The bald heads refer to our human vulnerability and innocence.
All of the paintings in this series had a reflective/dark side and consider them to be the best of Nancy’s whole career. This one, ‘Blood Floor, Clay Walls’, is the cornerstone painting of the series. Hope to get a public gallery collection or a significant private collection so that it could be seen by many.
JERUSALEM WANGANUI RIVER
Title: JERUSALEM WANGANUI RIVER
Artist: William Bouwmeester
Material: Oil on Canvas
Picture Size: 83cm x 63cm
A large oil on board painting signed Willem B. William Bouwmeester is a well known New Zealand artist who came from Holland and emigrated to New Zealand in the 1950s or thereabouts. Quite a well known artist. This painting is quite a large piece of work centered around Jerusalem, and is entitled Jerusalem Wanganui River. It is dated on the back as 1994. That is the Title the artist used, so that is the title of the painting. It is not my declaration or spelling or opinion etc etc, just simply the title as given by the artist some 16 years ago. If this worries or offends you, you may want to get hold of him and remind him incase some other future works centre around the same area is in the pipe line.
This art relates to James K Baxter & the Jerusalem history etc near Wanganui. It is quite striking. Is bold and has good colour. Has a nice real rimu frame. Could do with a bit clean and a dust, but apart from that it is fine. Great if you collect Willem Bs work or just want a striking different painting.

‘Solstice’ by Lyndsay Brock. Acrylic on canvas. Measurements; 76.4cm x 59cm x 3.5cm. This painting, from the artist’s ‘Masque’ series, depicts a veiled woman wearing an exotic mask and head-dress.
