Original Painting by Margaret Petchell 2014
Acrylic on Canvas 760mm x 101mm
Continuing with the larger than life theme from the 2013 exhibition “ The Commoners” “Over the Fence” is a collection of familiar , iconic New Zealand farm animals.
The animals peer out with a dignified anamorphic gaze, fixing the viewer with a look that connects with their soul.
The portraits show the animals proud and solemn against a white studio background, posing as if for a traditional sitting.
