Annie Sandano's South Sea Orbit Posted on 7 Jul 17:00

Annie Sandano in her Whitianga Studio

Having been based in the UK for the past year, Sandano recently returned to her Whitianga studio where she has expanded on her ongoing series of hoop paintings, collectively titled South Sea Orbit.

For each piece, Sandano works within a personal codex of colours which reference specific sites in New Zealand. While her colour choices are vibrant and playful, the finished pieces are underpinned by a strong sense of order founded on repetition, sequence and symmetry, and a meticulous attention to finishing.

These works herald exciting developments within Sandano’s practice as her opportunities abroad abound.
