Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Made from cast resin, moulded into pigmented layers, fused one to the other, then sanded back to a smooth and sparkling finish.  These are limited editions from an artist based in New Zealand who is unique.  We have yet to find another artist in the world creating anything similar. 

The Remarkables are a mountain range in Otago in the South Island of New Zealand.  Located on the southeastern shore of Lake Wakatipu, the range lives up to its came by rising sharply to create a remarkable backdrop for the waters.  The range is clearly visible from Queenstown and placed in the right light this piece takes on a mystical backdrop in your home.

Attended Elam Art School (Auckland) graduating with an Honours Diploma in painting. 1968 awarded the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at Otago University where experiments with synthetic media (resins) began. Following a couple of years teaching art at a College of Further Education in England, embarked on a Master of Fine Arts programme at San Francisco Art Institute specialising in plastics. It was during this time that Derek developed a direction in kinetic sculpture – making multiples that would sustain him and his family in San Francisco after the completion of the masters degree.
