Raffle ticket for Watermelon from the series Burst

This print was showcased at the Ellen Melville Centre during the Women's Work exhibition 'The Shape of Things" from March 5th to March 12th 2023 and is now up for raffle to support the Piha community after the devastating damage following Cyclone Gabrielle.

You will receive an A5 card with the image and a personal thank you note in the post from the artist, photographer Manja Wachsmuth. A random draw will be made on 22 April to reveal the winner.

All proceeds will be donated to Support Our Artists, Give A Little Fund run by Renee Tanner, supporting affected artists in Piha & Te Henga.

Returning to Denmark, my home country, for a visit in August 2022 for the first time after the pandemic lockdowns and four years of separation was a brutal reminder of how homesick I was. I had completely forgotten. Reconnecting with family and friends, most of which had never even met my youngest son, was incredibly precious but also heartbreakingly painful because a holiday just wasn’t enough time to truly reconnect.

This series explores quite literally the shape of things as they burst, but also metaphorically what it's like to be an ex-pat. No matter what I do, the feeling of being split regardless of where I live.

800mm x 2,100mm Full-colour Giclée on SAV with satin matt laminate seal. Mounted on 3mm Paligh.
Print comes signed by the artist and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

This charity raffle is available worldwide.

Delivery: Postage of A5 card worldwide included in raffle donation. Pick up of the awarded print must be arranged locally in Auckland or delivery/ shipping is available at the winners expense. Please allow 2-4 weeks.
