Anton Forde’s all-seeing, spirit-imbued Whakaruru / Protector extended series talks across time. Neil Adcock’s use of pounamu traverses the tiki form while establishing human characteristics. Kereama Taepa’s sculptural masks utilise traditional carving techniques and the motifs of popular culture. Neil Dawson’s feathers ask the viewer to examine how we look after the environment and what we value. Patrick Ferris, exhibiting for the first time, is revealed as a very distinctive emergent figure in New Zealand ceramics. Leanne Morrison continues her exploration of texture, line and perception. Jenna Packer builds inciteful visual metaphors drawn from the complex histories of New Zealand colonialism, the wasteful practices and perils of capitalism.
