Me te mea tērā ko te Pakiaka. Their stance is like that of the Pakiaka, the root of a tree. To lay the foundations or roots, the collaboration of two artists from different backgrounds and cultures has a solid root base, and it is from here that the work has the opportunity to bloom and flourish, just like our people. —Lewis Gardiner
On my many trips to Aotearoa, the Haka is always one of the most impressive ceremonial expressions. One can feel the strength and power of the ancestral continuum. For me, it was inspirational and allowed me to tap into my own sense of cultural strength and to bring this back to share with my community. —Preston Singletary
Collaboration for the Fire & Water: Pacific Visions in Glass and Jade exhibition, 2007.
Collaborations between great artists are historically rare, despite frequent attempts and enthusiastic interest to bring technical skills and artistic chemistry together. In the end, it often seems that personal careers, distance, and other issues make these projects too difficult to realize. What makes this particular collaboration even more remarkable is that the two artists are geographically in different hemispheres — almost at polar opposites of the world.
