Relation.part of Range of purses, bags and mats
This bag is part of a series of works produced in the 1990's. The artist supplied a few retail outlets in Auckland, New Zealand. The range of products include a range of purses, bags and floormats, all using similar motifs and materials.
Description The image or motif used here has been used in other works by the artist. The use of stencils gives a very similar style to the use of cut-out fabric used in "tivaevae" quilts which the artist has used as a source of inspiration. The use of strong symmetry and bold colour are also design elements common in the artists work produced in the 1990's. AF
