Ngāi Tuhoe

Drips paint onto cardboard and paint brushes, carves into set acrylic paint. Creates environments like forests. Thoughtful of her responsibility as an ancestor. Explores acrylic paints whakapapa, as kokowai pigment whakapapa to the whenua.

Creates forests, oceans and other environments. Seems to let the paint blobs create the landscape. Includes text that locates you, often talking directly to the location of himself or his people.
