He huahua te kai, he wai te kai

Puanga / Matariki is a time to come together to take a breath, to look back, look forward and share with one another. It is a time to acknowledge the evolution that continues in art practices and knowledge. Being offered at this time is Huahua Manu a visual feast of different art mediums featuring eight artists who manifest their stories through clay carvings, Maori weaving, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and installation.

Jon Tootill

Fri. 26 June – Sun. 26 July 2015 | FREE
Opening Thurs. 25 June, 6 - 8pm

Porotaka, by Jon Tootill (Ngai Tahu) is a focussed series of circular kowhaiwhai paintings that visually investigate meaning through pattern, colour, form and arrangement. These precise compositions develop over time through methodical and extensive experimentation until pattern and meaning come into balance. Intensely bold and detailed, his painting process is inclusive of both traditional and digital techniques involving, hand drawing, drafting and editing in Photoshop, before being meticulously hand painted

These exhibitions are part of the Matariki Festival
