Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit fervour aside, I’m not generally known for my rampant patriotism or love of things New Zealand, but I do appreciate the kitsch and the nostalgic.

Channelling JH Lynch (you may not know the name, but you’d probably recognise his ubiquitous paintings of retro lasses on black velvet), and seeking to capture a 1960s, straight-out-of-a-NZ-tearoom kind of vibe, ‘Kiwi Ana’ takes on a number of NZ pop cultural motifs. From the iconic to the edible, the natural world to the decorative, and with a sneaky tattooed homage to the work of one of my favourite NZ artists, Gordon Walters, the image is a lowbrow tribute to a NZ culture that is fondly remembered/imagined.

All of its elements have some sort of personal connection or significance in my own life; for instance, I had to find a way to get the NZ ten cent piece in there, because when I was a kid I refused to be paid in anything other than ‘butterfly money.’ Later I had it explained to me that my butterfly was actually a Maori tiki, but by that time I had probably moved on to ten dollar notes anyway…

You might call her tacky or you might call her timeless - she’ll take either as a compliment – but Ana is proud of her Kiwi kitsch heritage and would love to take pride of place on your wall right next to the flying ducks.
