“I thought about Auckland and how people come from out of town, how the big city draws you in. Then I started thinking about places outside the city. That's when I started thinking about different mountains and landscapes and how when people come here, they bring a piece of that with them.”
Shane Cotton is the creator of Maunga, a permanent artwork that now covers the western wall of Excelsior House. The basis of the artwork is a series of 25 works on paper created by Shane in response to Britomart’s commission. He and artist Ross Liew collaborated on the translation of those works into the five-storey-high artwork that now occupies the corner of Customs Street East and Commerce Street.
