Artist Spotlight: Jasmine Tuiā

Jasmine Tuiā discusses how the lockdown influenced her practice and bringing the online Fale-ship into the physical world. The use of materials from her home is reflected in her work ‘Folau Pea’ currently on show as part of ‘Moana Waiwai Moana Pāti’

“I didn’t have the materials here with me but I had access to my mum’s garden and my neighbours flowers. The lockdown forced me to be at home, to be with my family and just look at my surroundings and using what I have already and what I have access to.”
