Toss Woollaston

Aotearoa New Zealand, b.1910, d.1998

Motueka Foreshore Landscape

By 1971, Toss Woollaston had been working as a full-time painter for five years and was living in Riwaka near Motueka. His approach to painting landscapes, as he wrote to a friend, was about “making visible your own feelings when you look at it [...] making something unseen visible for the first time”.
