This weekend in Auckland I was stoked to see a show from the students at Mt Roskill Intermediate. They've been putting their minds to making masks with plant materials. Imagination is a fierce energy! Thanks for letting me be a part of your world for a time. "In Plants We Trust"
These are the students of Mt Roskill Intermediate and their Nikau Palm masks. This is excellent work from them inspired by the plants or in my words 'the nature of life'. #inplantswetrust. Thank you guys, you have inspired me. James H
Mosaics and masks both have very long and rich histories. For thousands of years we have
been wearing the guise of the unknown, a face of the imagined to relate messages and tell stories.
Mosaic has throughout history been used to convey narrative, to teach us of past events
and to enhance our environment with thoughtful detail.
Together we bring you our stories, our messages and a large dose of colour
with our ‘Mosaic & Mask’ exhibition. A week of insight into the artist’s worlds
and an opportunity to see and purchase original and unique creations.
