Revealing the trauma

The base of these paintings (shown below) were made when I was playing with paint in water. Those initial paintings where I relinquished control and let the water and the paint decide what would be reveled were basic and ugly to be honest, but I re-lived moments looking through them. Moments I had buried deep, moments I will grieve forever, moments where I bled on my whenua, moments I am not willing to talk about but have decided to share visually inspired by John Pule’s works.
