THE ROAD TO WAIMARAMA


Josh presents 11 new paintings, documenting the familiar sights and scenes along Hawke's Bay's iconic Waimarama Road. His enquiring eye and deft hand elevates the unassuming vistas of our domestic travels to extraordinary heights.

"It's a road we’ve driven a million times on the way to the beach. Each bridge, shed, and old tree appears on the unfolding road as an old friend we are always pleased to see again. Some of the scenes along the way are significant; some of them not. But they are all iconic landscapes, landmarks, and buildings that we have attached our own story to. There are places we know as familiar corners on our everyday journeys - little vistas etched into the hearts of locals, or out-of-towners on their summer pilgrimage to their beach.

"I like painting the things least painted: places and scenes that, until we see it as a painting, we might not realise just how attached to it we are. Places that may not be traditionally beautiful, but perhaps wonderfully familiar - reminding us of the places we go with the people we love." 
- Josh Lancaster
