Aroha Gossage’s paintings explore concepts of tangata whenua (people of the land), whakapapa (genealogy) and tūrangawaewae (a place to stand) and are informed by cultural, historical and spiritual connections to whenua (land).

Gossage’s work focuses on articulating a desire to imbue each painting with a sense of wairua (spiritual essence) and mauri (living life principle). Her paintings convey a sense of the subtleties of Māori history and ancestry, an awareness of an environment that is in continuous change & empathy for an indigenous emotional and spiritual connection to landscape.

This body of work focuses on a personal and spiritual relationship with particular places and spaces within the coastal area north of Auckland named Pakiri and also with Little Barrier Island, the ancestral home of Ngāti Manuhiri.
