McCahon wrote about this painting “In painting this landscape I am not trying to show any simple likeness to a specific place. These paintings are most certainly about my long love affair with North Otago as a unique and lonely place, they are also about where I am now and where I have been since the time when I was in standards four and five at primary school and living in North Otago. These paintings stand now as a part of a search begun in Dunedin, continued in Oamaru and developed by the processes of normal erosion since then. The real subject is buried in the works themselves and needs no intellectual striving to be revealed - perhaps they are just North Otago Landscapes.” The original painting that this print is reproduced from was the first artwork by Colin McCahon to be acquired for New Zealand’s national collection, the National Art Gallery (now part of Te Papa Tongarewa or the Museum of NZ). Printed on superb paper using the giclee printing process for a museum quality reproduction that will last decades.
