Unframed print. Forever enduring, the strong sculptural form of the Nikau Palm stands proud and majestic within this piece. Both elements of ocean and land surround the Nikau in a soft Autumn hue. Each panel reflects not only the transition of the seasons, but also the symmetry between the land and the sea that is so essential to the subtropical environment and Polynesian surrounds of my upbringing.   The ocean is captured through the rippling waves and the rays of the sun seen in the first panel. The changing image of the abstract Frangipani that follows shows the transition from Autumn to Winter as the seeds of new life are slowly enveloped until being fully enclosed during the cooler period of each year. Finally, the promise of new and eternal life so synonymous with Spring is represented by the intertwining spiral which promises so much for the pending months that follow.
