Acrylic on Canvas – 91.5 x 60.5 cm
One of my favourites of the whole collection, Mauna Loa is the biggest painting in the series and therefore rightly named after the largest volcano in the world found in Hawai’i. Mauna Loa, meaning Long Mountain, is one of five volcanos that form the Island of Hawai’i. The soft pink, white and yellow signify the vibrant sunsets on the island, but the bold red hexagons relate to the volcanic forms found in nature, the chaos boldly juxtaposed with calmness and tranquillity. Mauna Loa is an active volcano, the most recent eruption taking place in 1984.
