Ngataiharuru Taepa’s exhibition Kia Āio Te Whenua (20 Aug – 12 Sept 20) takes its title from a karakia and looks to those everyday moments that offer a sense of stillness or tranquillity; when the sun rises and a new day dawns, or when the sun sets below the horizon at the end of a long day.

Taepa’s series of intricately cut wooden panels continue the artist’s exploration of traditional kōwhaiwhai patterns through contemporary materials and processes, with these works painted in the pale pastel colours of rangi and the rusty red tones of whenua. This body of work was made as a response to the artist’s own desire to create something affecting and uplifting in the face of overwhelming global turmoil.
