Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art. (Leonardo da Vinci)
Ko te tokitope, ko te whao ngau, he tohu mauri
Ko te tātaki kawai he whakaara wairua
Ko te taumata atua, takaia ki te koroawai parirau
E hikina ai i tōna taongatanga ki te matakite, ki te rangatiratanga
(Ngā Toi i roto i te Marautanga o Aotearoa, 2000)
Just came across this web site today. Some really interesting pieces. Lots of thinking outside the box. I particularly liked the artist, Yolanda Dominguez, response to the tragedy in the garment factory in Bangladesh.
