Exhibition At Native Agent

My exhibition "Rugged and Ragged" at Native Agent is nearly over. It has been a great experience with lots of wonderful feedback. The Exhibition consists of Flags, Rugs and Rags all inspired by New Zealand history. My favourite piece was the shadow light box called Te Atatu, The Dawn (detail below). I love the dreamlike quality and the way the veil brought the shadows to life with its movement.
Ruritai means Sea Song or Shanty. This is a detail from a Sunshower cushion.
