About the artwork

Original painting was painted in 1979.

The seagrass basket was used as a navigation aid by Polynesian voyagers. I considered the fall of light on the weave and began to get some idea of how this may have been so. Of course, most people are impressed by the oranges but this painting is about the basket. 'Oranges in a Seagrass Basket' is considered by many people to be one of my iconic works. There are two versions in oils, one medium-sized, which paid for our solar heating equipment at Mt.View Place and one large, that lives on the wall of a friends in New Plymouth and is reproduced in Ron Sang's publication "Michael Smither, Painter".
