Hanley's exhibition of watercolours entitled "inside the Garden' was an expression of the artist's new attitudes towards existence and painting. Having readjusted to the external aspects of returning to New Zelanad he is, in these works, concerned with the inner nature of things. The garden is a place of peace and yet a place of great sub-molecular activity. "Those who see only the garden see nothing." Unlike the other works in this series of multiples which are all silk-screen prints, this one uses a line block and stencils and was printed by the artist himself.
