UHINGARO / CODE
30 April to 20 May 2019
Jon Tootill’s practice is informed by pattern and colour. Drawing inspiration from raranga (weaving /plaiting), tukutuku (wall panel weaving) and whakairo (carving), Tootill creates beautifully paired-back patterns that often mimic repetitive form found in nature.
In his new exhibition UHINGARO /CODE, Tootill presents a series of delicate watercolours on paper, focusing on small-scale works with intricately coloured patterns. As the title of the exhibition suggests, Tootill explores arts ability to communicate through a coded visual language of identity and meaning.
