Maori artist inspires with abstract paintings
His abstract paintings were one of four exhibitions to receive a solo project spot at the Art Fair, represented by his Sydney gallery Martin Browne Contemporary.
His light paintings reference his fathers’ customary Māori carving practice under the title Ripple Effect. The series of nine works were on show to over 10,000 people who attended the show over the four-day period.
“It was an awesome experience, something that I really enjoyed being involved with,” he says. “Not many artists get the chance to be involved with a fair like this, let alone given a solo spot to exhibit my art. It was a great honour.”
The Auckland Art Fair is an international showcase for contemporary art. Exhibitions are selected by a contingent of New Zealand and Australia’s leading galleries with the opportunity to view and purchase works by the region’s most sought-after artists.
