Artist Grahame Sydney, a vocal opponent of plans for wind farm developments in Central Otago, has defaced prints of one of his most famous paintings and is selling them to raise money to fund protest group Save Central.
Sydney is president of the Save Central group.
The 760mm by 1520mm defaced prints of Timeless Land had turbines painted in blood red, graffiti-style, across the landscape to emphasise the viciousness of wind-farm proposals, Sydney told the Otago Daily Times.
The group was looking to carry on its appeal against Project Hayes when hearings resumed in January and was looking for financial support.
The 1000 prints cost $35 delivered and for $50 punters could have their print inscribed and signed by Sydney.
They are available online at the Save Central website. Sydney painted Timeless Land in 1992.
The original is now part of a private collection.
