Being pro-Maori isn’t being anti-everyone-else. I wish people would stop that assumption. There aren’t many Måori in the world. I am glad to be a ‘pro’ one, but i do not paint with just brown.

This painting is about finding yourself somewhere, being the only ‘Maori’ and therefore required to speak on behalf of ‘your people’, then being ‘martyred’ by others who do not like ‘pro’ responses.

As you move around the painting, the colours shimmer with the light source.  This is thanks to the copper paints i use alongside others to create an effect that goes beyond the paintings surface colours.
