About this artwork

“The west coast evening light simplified the volcanic shapes of Paritutu and its islands and inspired the series of Back Beach prints made by my father and I in 1974. The second edition, in 2006, was printed by Artrite and this, by popular demand, is the third edition also printed by Artrite Screenprinting”. – Michael Smither

Limited edition of: 59
