Matatoki: Contemporary Māori Carving
21 Jun – 28 Sep 2014
Matatoki brings together the work of some of the very best internationally-recognised contemporary Māori carvers in New Zealand.
Each of the artists in this exhibition has developed a strong individual style that has been embraced by collectors and galleries. The result of this interest is that much of their work is leaving Aotearoa or going directly into private collections. Matatoki is an opportunity for local audiences to see the incredible skill and diversity of art being produced by these talented individuals.
The exhibition features works by eleven carvers all who studied in Rotorua. It includes Lewis Gardiner, Ian-Wayne Grant, Simon Lardelli, Todd Couper, Fayne Robinson and Iwi Le Comte.
