Artwork Detail Request a print

Peter Robinson’s works from the early 1990s are frequently concerned with questions about what it means to be an artist of Māori descent, or part-Māori heritage. The tribal gathering of waka (canoe) contrasts with a percentage that states the artist’s genealogy in the form of a mathematical fraction. (Te Moananui a Kiwa, 2005)
