Whakamutunga • Metamorphosis

The whale is a frequent traveller between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In my sculpture, as the whale crosses the equator it changes both in shape and in body design, from Northwest Coast Indian to Māori. Day changes to night.

Māori

Ngāti Koroki Kahukura

(1928- )

Educated in Hamilton, New Zealand, Fred trained as a teacher, focussing on the arts. He worked as an art specialist in schools in the Rotorua and Northland districts of New Zealand, then taught art to teachers. An important figure in Māori art since the early 1960s, he has participated in most major exhibitions of contemporary Māori art, including “Te Waka Toi: Contemporary Māori Art,” which toured the United States. His paintings and sculptural works are many and varied, some dealing with controversial issues, such as the continuing loss of Māori land, although his central themes are inspired by Māori traditions and legends.
