At the age of ten, Nigel Brown and his father went on the first of many long tramping trips into the New Zealand bush. The memory of these trips left a strong impression on the artist, and in his late twenties he made a large series of paintings inspired by the experience.
Nigel Brown sees art as “a mystery growing out of the obvious”. Here, we might begin to wonder why these tired-looking trampers seem to be lost in their own thoughts. Do you think they have nearly reached the place where they want to be? Are they enjoying their journey?
