First exhibition for Michelle Estall, Tauranga emerging artist.

The fire was ignited for Michelle after poignant visit with her Father to his Muriwhenua tribal territory (found at the Northern tip of the North Island.) Learning about and connecting with her Maori heritage Ko Te Rarawa and Te Aupōuri nga and meanings of the place names gave rich inspiration for the body of work which is Legend and Legacy.

Michelle’s Father who is depicted in a power piece in the exhibition was the son of the marriage of a local Maori woman from Te Kotahitanga in Whangapē and a migrant Croatian gum digger.

“ I have absolutely loved researching and learning about my Father's family heritage, ancestors and their legacy. It is in the retelling of these stories that lessons and values have been passed on from one generation to the next, so many of the stories are just fascinating.” - Michelle Estall

One Maori Proverb or Whakataukī has resonated with Michelle throughout the months of preparation for this exhibition is:
Titiro whakamuri
Kokiri whakamua

Look back and reflect so you can move forward.
