Exhibition of Maori portraits

Exhibition of Maori portraits

Below is a small exhibition of Waiheke Island Maori portraits.
I used the renowned Maori artists, Goldie and Lindauer as my inspiration and a starting point for their poses and richness of colour. I approached a Maori elder from our local marae for protocol guidance and he kindly opened the show with a karakia (blessing) and his wife lead a waiata (song) following this. It was truly a highlight of my life.
