Hello friends check out these images taken at Justin Summertons studio. You might recognise the surreal Wanaka picture we have used for Happy Isles. It’s stunning to see the textured original. It’s wild. Justin has the work that would justify big recognition and he doesn’t push it. Someone needs to support this work…
It’s truly great… it brings joy to the soul. He should be a household name but you know how the art world goes. Dire Straits sums it up In the Gallery

GREETINGS from Westport where I found the dream Rotunda. A friend of mine Gillian Henderwood (you might remember an album called Jam Sandwich she released back in c. the late 80s.
Brilliant album produced by the guy who created the world’s first robot band THE TRONS) recently did a tour of our nations finest rotundas and ; made it a policy not to advertise but simply play to anyone who happens to stop and listen.
No mean feat.
As you can imagine it isn’t gonna make world news. However I think she’s onto something. We can get these Rotundas back to being places of music performance. Why not? Let’s do what. She does. Let’s tour them and make a point of playing in every Rotunda we see even if it’s just one song to a passing pigeon.
Give it time and everyone will be celebrating these historic structures and using them again for the purpose they were built. A lot of work and gold went into building them. Let’s not waste the resource
