Artist Statement
sub urbia 2008
I left my family in Suva, Fiji when I moved to South Auckland in 2002. As a new migrant, I have documented my landscape. Early New Zealand landscape painters depicted the beauty and majesty of an ‘untouched’ land. This series of urban landscapes aims to depict a series of mini narratives about migration and movement, consumerism and health, religion, economy and wealth.
