About the Work
“I chose this work because I love Kumeroa’s animated works. Although the medium is different, for me, the connection between this earlier work and the artist’s current work is the layered quality of the image in a metaphorical and literal sense. The strength and conviction of an indigenous perspective is apparent in both the earlier and current animated works (sometimes in collaboration with Dr. Billy van Uitregt) and both draw the viewer in for closer observation.” – Frances Stachl (Ngāpuhi) ‘Ōku Kōwhiri - My Choice’ autumn 2024
