English Version
Rua moko in Red - M04104
Mixed media and acrylic on boxed board

The Rua moko series represents duality and the two differing views of the modern Maori to the outsider, being split into a tribal, indigenous race and still having to function in a modern European world. The relief glue panels give the dimension of carving in a contemporary way, accentuated by metallic highlights. I wish to explore modern techniques, and materials from the point of view of my Ancestors, including the paradox of materialism and earning a living, and quantity and speed vs. quality and craftsmanship
