Opening Saturday 12 February 2022
A self-taught artist of Māori (Te Arawa, Ngati Rangiwewehi) and European (Scottish/English) descent, Bruce Maxwell presents a series of personal narratives in acrylic.
With a focus on the old and new, ancestry, nature and spiritualism, each of the works Bruce presents in this show can be seen as a personal kōrero, as well as an opportunity for the viewer’s own interpretation.
Presented in the gallery, the works face one another to create a new "Kōrerorero" of their own.
Bruce Maxwell was born in Devonport and raised in Whakatane. He lives in Kirikiriroa Hamilton.
