Sopolemalama Filipe Tohi presents new paintings, maquettes and sculptures based on Tongan lalava (sennit binding). Presented as part of Celebrate Pasifka 2009, this solo exhibition explores recent works using classic patterns - some with traditional sacred hues and others with exceptional infusions of colour.

Tohi has identified a visual vocabulary based on lalava and what its patterns signify. He translates and expands this vocabulary into larger, two and three dimensional drawings, paintings and sculptures that allow viewers to enter and experience the nature of geometric patterns.

Tohi states, “My work transforms the technology of the past into a modern representation of identity and experience.”

Artist's floor talk: Saturday 28 March, 12noon - 1.30pm
