Artwork Detail Request a print

For this commission I have designed works based on kowhaiwhai patterns and elements from nature to reflect an upward journey from the ground to the canopy of the building. I draw inspiration from self-organising systems displayed in both nature and art that serve as a foundation for nurturing and supporting connections between tangata, toi and whenua.
