Tennyson Brown

Art for me is the roar that I am not quite allowed to make. As a rebel or truth seeker it is imperative I have an experience that puts me in the position of giving myself permission to roar. Art is that permission.

Hariata Tangahoe

Since she first exhibited in the early 1980s, Tangahoe has been described as a naive painter, but these days she shrugs her shoulders and says she has never thought of her paintings in such terms. Intuitive is a better word to describe Tangahoe's art, although she does embody something of 'the nave' who, according to Marcel Jean, "after reaching adulthood, retains intact the conviction that desire and reality are synonymous


TUPUNA

Ki te kitenga I ahau no oku tupuna
I tuku iho I tuku iho

(My visions come from my ancestors)


Practical living belongs in a universe which includes spirits and ancestors,
humans and the natural world all in one living cosmos, an ordered universe
that is interrelated and which has to be maintained through right relationships.'
A.C.Moore: Arts in the Religions of the South Pacific- Symbols of Life, 1995, pg. 68
