Each artwork shows an element of NZ culture. The eyes are drawn toward the rolling mountainous background and sky, yet brought to earth within the serene, still setting.
The contemporary artworks by Diana Adams in comparison feature detailed landscapes, drawing the eye toward iconic landmarks such as Rangitoto island and feature native botanicals like the Pohutukawa flower and the koru. The depth of colour and perspective captures Aotearoa at its purest.
Leader in the genre of Kiwiana iconography, Dick Frizzell inspires many contemporary artists nowadays with his expressionist style typography and iconic fine art prints.
