UHINGARO / CODE  by Jon Tootill


Jon Tootill

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.
