This beautiful, decorative oil painting is admired by everyone who sees it!

I bought the painting on impulse in 2014 for $14,000 from the artist’s dealer Bowen Galleries.
The work has travelled around NZ with me, it has even been to France and back.
This is a reluctant sale.
I adore the painting.
Finances however dictate that I sell.

One last time Alecia Jean by Shona Rapira Davies 1385 x 1385 mm, oil on board, 2012.
The artist painted the work in honour of her mother who defiantly planted freesias in a concreted over garden.

Shona Rapira Davies was born in 1951 at Auckland, New Zealand. She graduated with a Diploma of Fine Art from Otago Polytechnic in 1983 and she was the Frances Hodgkins Fellow at the University of Otago in 1989.

Shona first exhibited Nga Morehu (The Survivors) at the Wellington City Art Gallery in 1988. Nga Morehu was purchased in 1992 by the National Art Gallery (now Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand, Wellington). In March 1992 Nga Morehu was included in Headlands: Thinking through New Zealand Art at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia, in collaboration with the National Art Gallery, New Zealand.

From 1988 to 1992 Shona designed and completed Te Aro Park in Wellington, a major ceramic tile permanent work and considered one of New Zealand's most successful public sculptures. Please read the questions and answers for this listing.
