'The Wallflower' by Abbey Merson


'The Wallflower'


An original artwork by Hastings artist, Abbey Merson.

Painted in 2024 as part of my first NZ Art show collection.


In this series of work, the faces of the subjects are always concealed. The focus is on the actions and movement as something is being carried or brought. Each painting explores the simple beauty of everyday life; picking out vegetables at a market, pruning the hedges, or heading off to catch up with friends with a loaf of bread and some blooms.

These paintings celebrate our lives, living in NZ and the joy found in small, meaningful actions.


This piece is special. Take a closer look and you'll find magic in her—every color of the rainbow, shining like an iridescent jewel. This piece features a subject with their face concealed, emphasizing the delicate act of blending into the background. The true focus is on the calm surroundings, accessories and subtle gestures, highlighting the charm of being a gentle observer in a vibrant world. Appreciate the understated elegance and tranquility of "The Wallflower," and let it remind you of the beauty found in quiet corners.
