Exhibition - The Long Way

"On the 18th Feburary 2012 we found ourselves on a deserted south coast beach. Beyond the waves was the start of a two thousand kilometre self-propelled journey by paddle, peddle and foot leading to Cape Farewell, the most northerly point of the south island. This Exhibition represent all the outstanding moments of our three months travel through our most wild and beautiful places".

About the artwork

Poutini, the green-boned fish and gaurdian of pounamu, patrols the west coast protecting his treasure. For many centuries pounamu has been a symbol of peace, a healing stone, something to treat with great respect. It has travelled over the mountain passes onto distant lands and has been sculptured into tools and beautiful works of art. I wonder what thoughts crossed Poutini's mind as he witnessed his sacred treasure become the subject of much controversy in recent years.
