TE MARUNUI HOTENE

 

a solo exhibition of new works by Te Marunui Hotene.

 

27 Aug - 10 Sept 2016

 

Te Marunui Hotene is exploding onto the art scene with good reason. His works are bold and exciting, with an established and recognisable style.

Hotene’s drawings, paintings, and digital prints are figurative works rendered in a fresh expressive style, informed by Kiwi culture and pop art influences. They represent layers of people that he has encountered in the realm of the urban Maori. 

This vibrant young artist has an interest in upcycling found objects, and in the tradition of New Zealand artists such as the late Ralph Hotere, often chooses unlikely canvases to work on, such as dilapidated trampolines and nikau palm fronds. These materials reflect his artistic concerns.

“I see my work as an agent of change, promoting sustainability and balanced lifestyles as non-ethnic, universal values,” says Hotene.

his up-and-coming artist's work featured in many group exhibitions since he graduated. Hotene's first solo exhibition, titled "CHUR", showed at Taneatua Gallery in 2015. His work was involved in the Public Domain Art Fair 'DEMO SPACE' in Auckland earlier this year and in "ARTS REVEALED", a group show at the Whakatane Museum. Hotene received the New Zealand Children's Art House Foundation Trust Iti Waewae Award for 2016.
