EXHIBITION: Darcy Nicholas - Statements on Identity
In association with Kura Gallery, we are proud to announce the opening of the Exhibition 'Darcy Nicholas - Statements on Identity' - an exhibition featuring the artworks of leading Contemporary Maori Artist Darcy Nicholas, accompanied by Taranaki artists Maria Brockhill and Keiron Toa.
Darcy Nicholas emerged as a prominent Maori Artist in the late 1960's, and has sold his artworks to public and private collections around the world. He is a former Fulbright recipient (1984) and has won a number of awards over the years, including; the Absolutely Creative Wellington Award (2005) for creative vision and action for Porirua City; Queens Service Order Recipient (2012) for services to Museums; and the Te Waka Toi Supreme Award (named after the late Maori Queen,Te Atairangikaahu) for his lifetime services to Maori Art, in 2013.
This exhibition will feature some of his most treasured artworks (Taranaki Woman & Hinerangi - Daughter of the Heavens) as well as some recently created works, conveying the transformations in identity that Maori have experienced over generations.
