About This Work

"This image first appeared in my mind's eye as I was falling asleep one night. The monarch butterfly (scientific name - Danaus Plexippus) was introduced to NZ in the late 19th century. For me this screen print evokes a sense of empowerment, acknowledging the special place of Maori as Tangata Whenua.During the screen printing process, each colour was laid down separately using multiple passes of ink. This has created a solidity and strength which has fast become a recognisable feature of my work and something that I am extremely proud of."
