Opening 11.30am 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 and charcoal.

Throughout his life, Bruce has created works that respond to the land & water and he continues to express his experiences while developing a personal symbolism and style.

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, and he also acknowledges that others may interpret the works in different ways.

Bruce considers his works as a diary expressing something that has affected him at a certain time. Some of those thoughts are from the past, others were in the present. History, culture, relationships, world events, spiritualism and “just life in general” all inform Bruce’s work.

Presented in the gallery, the works are now able to face one another and hung in no certain order, they create a new "Kōrerorero" of their own.
