Civic Plaza Pop (Here I Give Thanks to M) invokes a couple of 'M's of the high art world - Mondrian and McCahon – reimagining the works of these poster boys of Modernism as decorative accessories for a pin-up girl, bringing them into the lowbrow context in the form of an earring and wallpaper.

Pop is present in the primary colours, retro hairstyle recalling the ladies of J.H. Lynch and the decidedly everyday material of wallpaper as surface, with the art historical hint in the title made clear in the formal properties.

Also referenced is my favourite public artwork in Dunedin, the immensely child-friendly sculpture by Derek Ball commissioned for the opening of the library in the Civic Plaza in 1981, also the year of my birth. Colourful and geometric, it straddles pop and abstraction in a succinct way. This stands as sentinel outside the library, and McCahon takes pride of place in the collection inside; both works which I engaged with daily while working there as a student.

The original painting was created using acrylic paint, pencil, spraypaint and wallpaper on shaped mdf board.
