Explore Robin White’s celebrated portraits and local landscapes from the 1970s, and the ambitious collaborative works she has made with artists from across the Pacific and Aotearoa New Zealand in recent years.
The exhibition includes early watercolour and drawings, her time in Otago Peninsula, working with Sam Hunt, and to her masi collaborations with Pacific artists including Tamari Cabeikanacea and Ruha Fifita.
“None of the works have come from my studio, they have been out in the world engaging with people and people engaging with them,” she says. “Each work brings to the exhibition stories that are known only to that work and the people with whom they have lived.
“There is a richness in that, it is way beyond me.”
