‘I wanted to express my concerns at the way countries like America and France test their nuclear powers and Star Wars programme using the ocean in our back yard as the site.’

John Pule

This painting targets individuals and groups who invade other people’s homeland and destroy homes through means of violence, deceit and lies. Like the historical hiapo (paper mulbery cloth) of Niue, this painting utilises the idea of interlocking grids to reflect diverse narratives. (Te Moananui a Kiwa, 2005)
