In reCollect I continue my exploration of the pictorials and politics of New Zealand’s postage stamps.

Literally and conceptually stamps carry messages yet they circulate throughout society with, generally, very little regard.

I have a fascination with these paper fragments that are often marked with the places and dates of their travels.

My aim is to re-collect these fragile pieces of New Zealand’s history. Playing with pattern and repetition, I reconfigure these ‘miniature artworks’, to give prominence to the images upon them.

Just what do these iconic images reveal about our values and our nation?
