Day, Melvin Date
1965 See full details
Vertiginous was painted while Day was in London in the 1960's. A Mediterranean headland painted in an English winter, the work nevertheless harks back to memories of Northland where, as a youth, he was impressed by the orange-red clay cliffs along the west coast. This painting, with its bold colours and off-centre composition, seems to lie on the edges of figurative, abstract and symbolic styles.
Pat Day lived and painted in Seatoun for decades. Day and his wife Oroya (née McAuley) were well-known figures in Wellington cultural circles. He passed away two years after her, in 2016.
