Titirangi, West Auckland

About Titirangi:

Titirangi is a prosperous residential suburb in the Waitākere Ward of Auckland, New Zealand. Titirangi is situated on the south side of Waitākere Ranges Regional Park, bordered by Glen Eden, Laingholm and Manukau Harbour.

In the Māori language, Titirangi translates to "Fringe of Heaven" – a fitting reflection of the proud celebration of nature and art in the area.

At the 2018 New Zealand census, Titirangi had a population of 7,203 with 2,469 households.

This residential suburb is distinguished by houses nestled along winding bush paths. Many of the houses here are distinctive in their designs, designed in harmony with the surrounding native rainforest.

Culture and Arts

The sculpture on the roundabout of Titirangi Road, Atkinson Road, Kohu Road, Scenic Drive and Huia Rd has been a landmark of Titirangi for many years, although it is a controversial presence. Crafted by student artist-jeweller Lisa Higgins in 1993, it was initially erected with the intention of only being in place for five years, but it remained permanent.

The Lopdell Precinct gives the community an artistic heart, creating art and cultural centre for the area. There are three buildings: the Treasure House, the Lopdell House and Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery. Te Uru's modern building was purpose-built as part of the comprehensive renovation of Lopdell House and opened in 2014.

Education

The nearest state secondary schools are Green Bay High School, Kelston Boys High School and Kelston Girls College.

And suddenly I'm home! Well, maybe not so suddenly, but in my jetlagged state the change of hemisphere, season, and time zone seems very abrupt and somewhat confusing! Pushing on through though and I have two markets this weekend - crafternoontea in Mt Albert on Saturday, and titirangivillagemarket on Sunday. .

Big change for me coming up this year. Over the Christmas break I did an exercise , where I had to imagine how I’d like my life one year from now. One of the things I wrote down was to have a dedicated time for painting . And ... it looks like it’s happening . I had a meeting on Friday and the plan is to condense my teaching hours into 4 days , which is going to give me Mondays for painting ! I’m so happy that I’m going to have a guaranteed painting time.
The other days are going to be full , and I’ll have to be more organised so that chores don’t all spill into my precious Monday but this is going to make such a difference !
I’m going to start loving Mondays.
Thanks to louisefletcher_art and alicesheridanstudio for your your best art year ever course. .

This is how I feel about French pastries. 🇫🇷🥖 While up in Auckland, my friends took me to a market in Titirangi that only happens once a month. I was so impressed with the products for sale, I only wished I had more luggage space. We had lunch plans, but I couldn't help myself from buying this French pear puff pastry. It's a weakness. 😇 🥐 🛍️Do you like French pastries? What is your favorite type of pastry? #titirangi #titirangivillagemarket #frenchpastries ...

An endangered species. The feral domestic fowl who live on the streets of Titirangi and in the surrounding bush are to be moved on, supposedly because they attract rats the size of cats . #rooster #domesticfowl #hen #birdsofig #birdsofinstagram #birdsofnewzealand #fowl #fowllife #newzealandbirds #titirangi #titirangilife #titirangivillage #waitakere #waitakereranges #auckland #lumixnz #lumixg9 ...

What to do now ? I had so much fun adding colours to canvas in a gestural way- working fast and with big brushes , making the most of the scale.
My plan was for these to be the first few layers and then I’d start adding my details , layers and shapes. But something stopped me.
.
.
I think it’s because I’ve always admired those large abstract expressionist paintings, like Grace Hartigan etc. So I just like the novelty of having them in my room- they look bold and colourful and now I’m not sure I want to paint on them. .
.

My paintings are usually made over a long time, lots of layers and struggling thorough good stages and bad stages . It’s made me wonder if I feel like all that struggle and time adds to their value. Is a painting worth less because the end result was achieved faster ? I do sometimes wish I could get to my end point faster, through producing work with more simplicity to it. But then, I also get so much out of the problem solving and the highs and lows of making a painting that works.
Do you sometimes prefer those first layers that are created with abandon ?
My fear is will I regret it?
