Maumahara

Print on museum archival paper or canvas | signed limited edition (only 95 prints available)

In this painting, a carved pou invites you into his memories. In his mind's eye, coloured skies and silhouetted trees are etched against a burning sky. New light brings transformation and new language as the red, yellow, black and white rakau create the foundation for new ways of expressing life. Brightly coloured rakau (cuisenaire rods) spill from his mouth revealing stories and patterns through language. Two world entwine, memories of a drought that left the earth barren, and a new resurgence with vibrant and contemporary narratives yet to be sharedMaumahara, 'remember who you are' is a reminder of the past, present and future and their continuous convergence as memory continues to filter from our ancestors through to us.
