Ivy Hill Gallery, Wapengo NSW 2016

Growing up in New Zealand I was influenced by the intricacies of Maori patterns from the painted columns and woven panels of Maori Meetinghouses and later through research came to understand them as symbols representing a visual language that could be read as we understand written text. 


Questioning the way Europeans reference the visual I explore our written language through various lenses, playing with text as pattern, language as mimicry, and words as art. The literal meanings of the words are pushed towards a purely visual language where the words, shifting and transforming, are reconfigured as mesmerising patterns.


The words in this exhibition come from thoughts of recently moving to the Far South Coast of New South Wales.
