About "Diamond Head - Hawaii
"


LeRoy Neiman has filled his serigraph with the sights, sounds, and smells of Hawaii. Near the water’s edge, a small group of friends have gathered with guitar and ukelele, playfully starting up an impromptu hula. The intense heat makes the beach glow like live coals while visitors annoint themselves with fragrant tanning oil and coconut butter. Bright sarongs recalling Dorothy Lamour compete with even brighter swimsuits, mumus and Hawaiian shirts. A rescue board on the beach stands ready to help swimmers, surfers, or windsurfers enjoying the pleasant waters of the bay. Other surf boards rest casually against the distinctive leaning palm trees which partially obscure glittering hotels. Near the base of one palm sits a spry, bearded figure with a cane, dressed white. The “old boulevardier,” as Neiman refers to him, is a recurring figure who has appeared in “The Beach at Cannes,” “Place de l’Opera” and several other serigraphs. This sage observer seems to represent much of the good life, a sort of alter ego for the artist. While the hot sands of Waikiki Beach are alive with activity, the cool green profile of Diamond Head can be seen in the distance. Like Koko Head and Punchbowl, Diamond Head is actually an extinct volcanic crater. It was believed to be the home of Pele, the Fire goddess, and got its name in the early nineteenth century when British soldiers mistook the volcanic crystals known as “Pele’s tears” for diamonds. Leahi Point, 760 feet above the sea, juts aggressively into a swirling sky which shifts and shimmers with the vigorous action Neiman collectors have come to expect.
