UPPER HUTT CITY COUNCIL
A SALUTE TO THE PAST
I had the pleasure of working alongside NZ Defense Force Artist Captain Matt Gauldie, in the creation and installation of the Trentham Mural. It is a commemorative piece in recognition of the soldiers who have served, and who will serve, and their families.
The Rena was a container ship which ran aground near Tauranga, NZ, on October 5th 2011. It broke in two after heavy wind and seas. Resulting in what came to be known as NZs worst ever maritime environmental disaster.
The Rena was carrying 1,368 containers, some of which held hazardous materials, along with 1,700 tonnes of fuel oil and 200 tonnes of diesel.
