Titokowaru’s Dilemma represents the culmination of three years worth of research and print making by Marian Maguire, who is one of New Zealand’s most accomplished print makers. Having begun the research for this body of work in August of 2008, Maguire used her six week tenure as artist-in-residence at Tylee Cottage in 2010 to further research the project and visit notable historic sites in the Whanganui and Taranaki regions. Although work on Titokowaru’s Dilemma began at Tylee Cottage, the production of the final suite of work that you see in the gallery now has been completed at Maguire’s Christchurch print studio, since late last year.

The Sarjeant Gallery is proud to be the first venue to show this beautiful new body of work and after its debut in Wanganui the exhibition will tour to other venues nationally. Like all Cantabrians, Maguire’s life has certainly been unsettled over the last year as a result of the two major earthquakes. The fact that she has managed to produce such a remarkable and polished body of work and also a substantial catalogue to accompany the exhibition, is a major credit to her.
