This show features a number of Orexart artists who choose to paint New Zealand from their own perspective, in a way that combines something of their past with a response to where they currently. The West Auckland urban experience of Glen Wolfgramm contrasts strongly with the elements of the Pacific he brings into his work. This is a true blending of motives.

Each artist brings a sense of self to their work, an element of separation, nostalgia, and yet in equal parts elements of inclusion, submersion even, into this place. And, if one searches for it, perhaps an element of fear, unease, fracture.

Time doesn’t soften the experience of departure, nor does it dull the anguish of arrival, time only creates space to live. For the children of new settlers, separation isn’t so much measured by time and distance, it’s often measured by difference.
