Tia Ranginui: Gonville gothic

Whanganui photographer Tia Ranginui (Ngāti Hine Oneone) puts her own spin on patupaiarehe, sometimes described as Māori fairy folk. Said to live in the mountains and forests, away from people, in Ranginui’s work they are out and about in the Whanganui suburbs of Gonville and Castlecliff. They still conjure the mist, only now it's supplied by smoke machines and vapes.

Ayesha Green: Still life
Ayesha Green: Still life

These new works by Ayesha Green (Ngāti Kahungunu, Kai Tahu) were produced during her recent residency at Parehuia-McCahon House. They mark a shift into still-life painting and the negotiation of the complex conventions of this historic genre. As with all of Green’s work, these new paintings are layered with references and are mindful of the formats and genres they utilise, prompting us to consider the history and politics of representation.
