About the event
These paintings are always, already, historical. In the last two years, while Zoe has been working on this collection, the Midway SLS club has gone, and so too has the Waimatā tugboat. Waiteata Park now has riparian under-planting, and the face of te Kurī o Pāoa/Young Nick’s Head is always changing. Although her intention wasn’t to record scenes of te Tairāwhiti for the purpose of documenting them, these works represent another chapter in the tracing of local history.
