Freeman White

A contemporary account of the timeless ocean and coast of this region, from Waimarama Beach, through Napier Beach to Mahia Peninsula.

Freeman was inspired to paint these works documenting the passage of night to day and day to night through simply waking up one day and watching the sunrise through his kitchen window. The idea that these coastal views are timeless and although they are contemporary documents of the now, these views have remained relatively unchanged for centuries.

These works are a celebration of the power and ever changing splendor of nature, the inspiring place that I call home, and the expressive and illusionistic qualities of the medium of oil paint.
