Pat Perry

Whanganui, New Zealand

Painting of Edith Collier, accidentally painted on her 134th birthday, in her hometown of Whanganui.

Though she never really got the wider acclaim she deserved, she had a profound affect on the people her work touched nonetheless, which seems like the best any of us can hope for in the end. 
super thanks to Whanganui Walls, & special thanks to Sarjeant Gallery for letting me look through the Edith archives to find the original painting that’s the background for this piece.
