Sheyne Tuffery’s latest exhibition The Ancient Mariners is on now
at Papakura Art Gallery from 14 May to 11 June
in congunction with the Pacific Arts Summit 2011.
It is a response to recently becoming a Matai (Samoan chief).
He said being given the title made him look at Polynesian history afresh,
(like a trailer of new movie) images of that time.
My new work is an artist’s depiction of Island life
when the Polynesians were searching of new lands to start new cultures
